Call ahead This experience may be open for on-site visitation; however, offerings and/or operating procedures may have changed due to COVID-19. Please verify details before you go and visit the COVID-19 Resources page for more information.

Cape Perpetua is a large forested headland on the central Oregon Coast which projects into the Pacific Ocean. It’s part of the Siuslaw National Forest and it is a great place to experience towering trees looming through a coastal fog, frothy surf crashing upon jagged shores, and majestic headlands offering clear views for miles.

Cape Perpetua is located 2 miles from Yachats and has a visitor center (Cape Perpetua Visitor Center) that offers a phenomenal view of the ocean from inside and from the deck. A variety of short movies are shown in the theatre, and Center staff can answer questions and help you plan your trip.
