The Southern Oregon Coast is as picturesque as the Northern Coast, but with smaller towns and more nature walks and trails throughout. Again we are impressed by the magnitude of State Parks along the way, and Oregon’s celebration of their coastline.
The Southern Coast has more lighthouses, and more spurious rocks in the ocean jutting out, ocean spraying from their jagged edges, vs. Northern coast’s individually named singular rocks like Rockaway, and Haystack. This coast is more rugged, with windy roads and frequent pull outs.
Several lighthouses are part of State Parks including campgrounds and walking trails to allow one to spend time to appreciate and enjoy the super scenic area, complete with beach, rock formations, and lighthouse trails.
