If you’re traveling the Oregon Coast, be sure to visit the Heceta Beach area. It’s beautiful with both sand and sea stacks. There are also lovely trails, good parking and don’t miss the beautiful Heceta Beach Lighthouse. It’s well worth the stop. It can get foggy but this is as pure a beach as you will ever see in the US. The flat, hard sand is great for walking or running. One thing to keep in mind is that you should either by a pass to get to all the beaches or only select the ones that you really want to go to.
