Cape Blanco Is THE Beach You Need To Visit This Summer

It may not have white sand and palm trees, but Cape Blanco beach needs to be on your summer destination bucket list.

The beach is located in Cape Blanco State Park on the Pacific Coast of southwest Oregon. At the westernmost tip of the cape sits a lighthouse that began operating in 1870.

The state park offers camping, hiking, fishing and, of course, beach access. And, being the westernmost point in Oregon, Cape Blanco boasts breathtaking views.
