About Pacific City

Looking out towards iconic Cape Kiwanda and the vast wilderness of the ocean, Pacific City is a beautiful Oregon destination for lovers of the great outdoors. Accommodation options range from simple, self-catering spots to a luxury hotel with indulgent suites and cottages, fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets. With the best places to stay in Pacific City set right on the beach, surfers, kayakers, anglers and hikers can immerse themselves in the magic of the region’s natural wonders.

For a sense of the area’s awe-inspiring landscapes, take the Three Capes Scenic Drive. Hike amidst the old spruce trees at Cape Meares State Park, keeping an eye out for migratory whales in the water during the winter and spring months and try surfing, kayaking or horse riding near Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area before exploring Bob Straub State Park. The waves along this stretch of coastline are particularly popular with surfers, whilst keen anglers will find excellent opportunities for rewarding fishing trips out at sea.

Birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiasts and hikers, on the other hand, will adore the varied habitats of the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge, which supports the world’s entire population of Semidi Islands Aleutian Cackling Geese. Don’t miss the chance to take the little ones clamming, to enjoy a boat ride along the waterways, or to cycle along myriad pathways and beachfront trails as a family.

Back in Pacific City, you’ll find friendly seafood eateries and a relaxed, small town feel. The Pelican Brewing Company is a real highlight — round off your day with a beer or two before returning to one of the best places to stay in Pacific City!
