What to do in Paradise Point State Recreation Site

Paradise Point features a parking area with an expansive coastal vista stretching from Port Orford Heads to Orfords offshore reef and distant Cape Blanco and the lighthouse there. The beach is great for beachcombing; it's not unusual to find floats and agates here.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park.

Paradise Point offers beach access and opportunities for beachcombing, viewing coastal scenery and viewing marine wildlife.

Paradise Point is located on the South Coast, off U.S. Highway 101, 6 miles north of Port Orford.

The Oregon coast receives abundant rainfall, mostly between October and April. July and August bring the best chance for clear days. Summer temperatures are normally moderate and almost never hot. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long.
