You can’t escape the call of the sea, and quite frankly, why would you want to? The ocean is amazing and when you’re staying at Bay Point Landing, Oregon lighthouses are nearby! Many a sailor has been happy to see the light beaming out from the lighthouses along the coast, guiding them to safety.
There’s just something about lighthouses. They manage to be both historic, practical, and romantic all at once. Even better? Many of them are located not too far from where you’re planning on staying. So, you could pack a picnic and visit some of the lighthouses, or you could just head on out and plan to have something to eat and drink at any of the great establishments you’ll find in the area.
There are a few nearby ones that you can check out. The first is the Cape Arago Lighthouse located in Charleston. It was first illuminated in 1934 and has quite the fog horn. Unfortunately, this is one you’ll only be able to see from a distance as it is located on an island and is not accessible to the public.
Another option is the Coquille River Lighthouse in Bandon, just about 20 miles south of Coos Bay. It was built in 1896 and decommissioned in 1939. It was restored in 1979 and tours are available. Another option that’s not too far away is the Umpqua River Lighthouse in Winchester Bay. It was built in 1894 and offers tours as well.
