Florence Heceta Head Lighthouse

Heceta Head Lighthouse

Situated high above the Pacific Ocean on the rugged Heceta Head outcropping is one of the most popular and inspirational sites on the Oregon Coast; and it is only about 10 scenic miles north of Florence. It is a must-see among must-sees here in Oregon’s Coastal Playground.

Heceta Head Lightstation [say “Ha (or Huh) – SEE – Tah” to sound like a local] is one of the most beautiful, and thus one of the most photographed, lighthouses in the world.

The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Queen Ann style Light Keeper’s home, circa 1894, are both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Free tours are available of both. The home is now a highly-rated bed-and-breakfast with antique furnishings and an indulgent seven-course breakfast of locally- and regionally-sourced delicacies.
