About 36 miles south of Newport (and Yaquina Head Lighthouse), just north of Florence, is located one of the loveliest and photogenic lighthouses you can find — Heceta Head.

The keeper’s house, high on a hill overlooking the beach, is a bed and breakfast where overnight guests occupy the top floor and daytime visitors can tour the rest of the fully furnished late-19th-century home. A path from the house leads up the hill to where the 56-foot lighthouse stands sentinel atop a 205-foot cliff.

Here’s a tip or two for photographers: a great view of Heceta Head is from Sea Lion Caves, on a bluff a few miles to the south. After admiring all the sea lions lolling on the rocks, climb the stairs to the lookout. Across the water stands the lighthouse in a postcard-perfect view.

Also, right at / behind Heceta Head Lighthouse there’s a tiny hill from which you have a top-down view on the lighthouse and the ocean.
