Named after Don Bruno de Heceta, a Spanish explorer, Heceta Head lighthouse is located north of Florence. This 56-foot tower was first lit in 1894.
The half mile hike to the top of the lighthouse from the parking lot is well worth the effort. The spectacular view makes it a great place to share a kiss or for a picnic. In addition, the former keeper’s residence located adjacent to the lighthouse functions as a bed & breakfast. Visitors can tour the lighthouse from April through October.
