Gold Beach, Oregon Coast
Drive along the spectacular Oregon coast overlooking rocky headlands to Gold Beach, a small seaside town where the Rogue River meets the Pacific Ocean. Head for the Port where you will see lots of great fishing boats, barking sea lions lazing in the sun, an 1880 vessel sunken in the harbour, and even a small museum. Visit the fish market and stroll around the shops offering fresh ice cream and foaming cappuccino and gift shops featuring the work of local artists. And whilst you are there, you have to rent a crab ring and go crabbing!
Enjoy the wild side of life from the excitement of salmon fishing, rafting or taking a jet boat tour on the mighty Rogue River, to the adrenaline rush of windsurfing one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. Walk along the miles of uninterrupted, secluded beaches and hike the windswept headlands or watch the amazing animals on land or in the sea, or even capture nature’s perfection in a photograph or painting inspired by the gorgeous scenery.
