Make Cape Kiwanda your next getaway—choose from 20 great vacation rentals

While Cape Kiwanda is specifically the name given to the 185-acre State Natural Area (part of the Three Capes Scenic Route), many local businesses have embraced it as well, thus expanding Cape Kiwanda's influence slightly further south down the coast and making the name more or less synonymous with Pacific City.

Recent Cape Kiwanda vacation rental reviews

We loved the three floors! The View was astounding. We love the floor plan with the decks and the living space where everybody congregated. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and utensils, plates, etc. It was wonderful having four bathrooms for all of us :-) it was one of our best family times ever. An easy walk across the street to the beach and so many great memories of playing in the sand and walks on the beach and discovering sea creatures in the rocks. We'd love to do it all over again :-)

The house was so beautiful and spacious. It was so close to the beach which made it even better.
Carolina M. | May 2022
Perfect beach house for my daughter, two little ones and myself. All the bedrooms are upstairs, which is nice due to me being an early riser and not wanting to wake anyone. Lots of walking paths and the beach is a 3 min walk from back door. Outside shower is fun and definitely helped get the sand off of our feet before entering house. I would only suggest bring your non stick pan for cook with in addition to spices.

Whether your plans take you to the coast for surfing, kayaking, hiking the sand dunes, or beach combing, our vacation rentals near Cape Kiwanda are an ideal destination for large groups or families looking to get away from it all along the beautiful Oregon Coast.

Where is Cape Kiwanda?

Cape Kiwanda lies roughly 100 miles west of downtown Portland, making it close enough for a well-deserved day trip. While the specific coastal State Natural Area bearing its name stretches about two miles north from Hungry Harbor Road up to an area directly across from Sears Lake, nearby Pacific City and Cloverdale both contain businesses and other destinations that proudly proclaim association with the Cape Kiwanda name.

Those traveling via small plane can enjoy the convenience of the Pacific City State Airport located on the east side of the Nestucca River, which allows visitors to deplane and hit the beach within a matter of minutes.

Things to do at Cape Kiwanda

Visitors to the Northern Oregon Coast are often looking for a quiet corner of the world to escape to where they can surf, walk on the sand, or just kick back and admire the view. A visit to the Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area offers access to hiking trails that eventually lead to views from atop the Great Dune of Nestucca Bay to the south and Cape Lookout to the North. And don't miss the adjacent Marine Garden offering opportunities for tide pooling and observing a variety of cliff-nesting birds.

As you walk along the beach just south of this area, you can gaze upon the monolithic Haystack Rock (also known as Chief Kiawanda Rock), an impressive geologic icon located roughly 500 feet from the shore, out beyond the breakers. Other outdoor activities popular in the area include fishing, crabbing, clamming, kite flying, horseback riding, camping, kayaking, and canoeing.

For great food and handcrafted beers, be sure to visit the oceanfront Pelican Pub & Brewery located right on the beach off Cape Kiwanda Drive. A short journey into downtown Pacific City will deliver you to quaint art galleries, gift shops, and a few other popular restaurants and coffee shops including the Grateful Bread Bakery, Sportsman Pub and Grub, and the Oar House Bar & Grill.

Nearby attractions worth seeing

As mentioned earlier, Cape Kiwanda is the southernmost stop on the Three Capes Scenic Drive, starting with Cape Meares to the North (home of the historic Cape Meares Lighthouse and the must-see Octopus Tree), continuing with Cape Lookout State Park, and concluding with Kiwanda. This pleasant, meandering drive offers ocean vistas, small towns, trailheads, and sand dunes.

Another worthwhile destination is Lincoln City, located just 24 miles south of Cape Kiwanda. Offering seven miles of pristine beaches, a popular casino, antique stores, kite-flying festivals, and other unique events like Finders Keepers (running mid-October through Memorial Day) where nearly 3,000 handcrafted glass floats made by local artisans are secretly left under cover of night for visitors to discover the next day, Lincoln City is definitely worth the trip.

The Oregon Coast is a destination like no other and those looking to enjoy the surf, walk the sands, or hike the trails will find it all and more with our vacation rentals near Cape Kiwanda.
