The Best Photography Locations on the Oregon Coast

Posted by Mekenna Malan on

With miles and miles of public beaches, moss-covered forests, rocky cliffs, lighthouses and more, it's no wonder the Oregon coast is a destination for adventure-seekers and photographers alike! Only a short road trip from Utah, we knew the Pacific Northwest would be the perfect place to shoot ROOLEE's fall collection. We rounded up our favorite photography spots we found below so you can plan an Instagram-worthy coastal road trip of your own!

CANNON BEACH

Haystack Rock, a picturesque landmark located off the shore, is the most photographed feature of Cannon Beach for good reason! This huge rock is gorgeous on its own and adds dimension to any photo. The grassy walkway featured below can be found on W. Harrison Street.

ECOLA STATE PARK

There are two scenic settings inside Ecola State Park: mossy green forests and a beautiful ocean cove! It's easy to spend a day exploring here. We loved the understory of ferns throughout the forests and the view of the beach from the lookout at the top of the Indian Beach Trail.

NESKOWIN

If driving to Neskowin from Lincoln City, there are plenty of beautiful pull-offs along the road that feature mossy forests and huge, green ferns. Once at Neskowin Beach, take a walk to Proposal Rock - there's a hole in the rock large enough to climb through when the tide is low!

PACIFIC CITY

We love this beach for its large sandbar and varied scenery. Find the wooden bridge by the beach entrance, and then walk to the northernmost end of the beach to explore a large sand dune and orange cliffs!

OCEANSIDE

Want some more photos with a lush green backdrop? Hike along the Cape Lookout Trail for only 1/4 mile and you'll be in the thick of it! The way the light filters through the branches on the trail is a photographer's dream. A wonderful beach view of Three Arch Rocks is nearby at the Symons State Scenic Viewpoint or Oceanside Beach Park.

TILLAMOOK

You can't travel the Oregon coast without stopping by a lighthouse! These lighthouse photos were taken at the Cape Meares Scenic Viewpoint. To get there, you'll walk along a gorgeous trail complete with forested views, streams that branch off from Tillamook Bay, and even the state's largest Sitka spruce.

  • We always go to Cape Meares because the beach is never crowded but Manzanita has the good food! Now that you’ve been to Portland you should open a shop a here 🙏🏻🙏🏻
