Waterfall Safety and Common Sense

This Oregon Coast Waterfalls page is what we’ve put together to honor the plethora of mostly nameless waterfalls that dive right onto a beach or into the Pacific Ocean along the Oregon Coast.

In general, we find such waterfalls to be rare enough, but here in Oregon, they seem to be a dime a dozen.

So we’ll just put up the photos of the waterfalls we have seen and accompany them with descriptions so you may try to find them yourself.

Note that the above photo is of the waterfall at the lighthouse view from the Sea Lion Cave about 11 miles north of Florence).

Now there is one caveat here, and that’s the fact that our trip received plenty of rainfall.

Therefore, it’s conceivable that we inadvertently timed our trip for the maximum number of waterfalls all up and down the spectacular Oregon Coast.
