You must take the 2 mile drive up to the top of Cape Perpetua and see the view from the stone building. It's unbelievable how far you can see up and down the coastline. It was an easy hike in and out.

The entire Cape Perpetua area is just spectacular--from the stunning coastline views, the visitor's center, and the hiking trails from there. During the summer, some gray whales stay and feed in the waters, not making the trip all the way north. We were able to...More

The views were stunning and it was a nice hike down to the visitors center. Lazy tip: have someone drive you to the top and then hike down. The old growth is amazing. Devils Churn was ok, but my experience might have been limited by...More

We spent the morning at Cape Perpetua going through the tide pools and watching Thors well and the spouting Horn. The visitor center is well done with very good educational exhibits and the beautiful picture window with which to view the ocean and spouting Horn....More

I suppose "best" view is a matter of personal choice, but it you are near Perpetua and you fail to check it out, you are missing a spectacular spot. From 800 feet above the Pacific you will think you can see all the way to...More

Cape Perpetua is absolutely stunning and the hikes from the parking lot are worth the trip. During whale watching season it’s a great viewing area although the Grey Whales hang around most of the year and can be seen at any time. Stop and look...More

When driving out of Yachats, you will pass through the Cape Perpetual scenic area. The entire area is breathtaking. You will want to pull over frequently to enjoy and photograph the amazing sights.

Hi, Jodi. It really depends on the time you usually spend getting to feel the beauty of a place. I would say three hours as minimum time (if you are the type that does museums in less than an hour). In my opinion, even if... More
