|You will love visiting this area. There is so much to see and do.
The southern Oregon coast is simply spectacular. Where the mountains and the forests meet the ocean. Where eight rivers flow through towering forests of Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, Port Orford cedar, and exotic myrtlewood into the sea. They pass through quiet, historic waterfront towns with picturesque working ports, vibrant arts communities, and more parks per mile than anywhere in the country.
Enjoy art galleries, gift shops and antique stores (where they still have "finds") in every town along the southern coast and on 101 south of Bandon.
You'll find everything from quiet beaches to busy casinos, great windsurfing spots, hiking trails and some of the best ocean and river fishing in the world.
Take a horseback ride on the beach or ride a jetboat up the Rogue for the time of your life. Explore vast wilderness areas, scenic working lighthouses and beaches covered in agates, feldspar and driftwood. Try crabbing and clamming, and don't miss some of America's best whale and bird watching sites.
Hire a guide, go with a group or take off on your own. You'll find everything you enjoy... the only thing we don't have here are the crowds.
Even the weather helps create the experience. From mid-May to mid-October, the weather is so predictable you can count on sunshine and 65 to 75 degrees with a comfortable ocean breeze almost all the time. During the winter, the weather is so unpredictable that one day you'll see hurricane force winds, giant crashing waves and horizontal rain... followed by blue skies and warm sunshine the next.
