Not many people know about this secluded part of the Oregon coast just west of Portland. Highway 101 between Tillamook and Lincoln City runs inland, but along the coast line there is the beautiful Three Capes Scenic Loop. This is one of the most spectacular stretches of scenery on the Oregon Coast – if not the entire west coast. Driving through three state parks – Cape Meares, Cape Lookout, and Cape Kiwanda – you find the tiny village of Tierra del Mar. It is nestled between Cape Lookout and Cape Kiwanda just north of Pacific City. Walking along the beach you are unlikely to run into anyone else. It is you, the beach, and the sea with its never ending waves. What more could you ask for?
