Overview

More About
Pacific City, OR

About Pacific CityPacific City lies on the Nestucca River and its namesake bay, at the southern end of the Three Capes Scenic Drive. Cape Kiwanda’s dramatic sandstone cliffs dominate the north end of town, rising from the beach in giant mounds of sand. The monolith off the north end of the beach is 327-foot Haystack Rock, not to be confused with the feature of the same name at Cannon Beach.

The town is a resort and fishing center, famous for its dory fleet. Rather than navigate the roundabout Nestucca Bay channel, anglers launch their dories directly into the Pacific surf around 6 a.m. and return in the afternoon. These flat-bottomed boats came into use in the 1920s, after gill net fishing was banned in the bay.

Bob Straub State Park, at the south end of town, occupies the sandpit separating Nestucca Bay from the ocean. Some of the longest waves on the Oregon coast make Pacific City a surfing center. Hang gliders congregate around Cape Kiwanda.
