My Recommendations for Some of the Best Honeymoon Spots
Beverly Beach State Park - 7 miles N. of Newport, OR
Beverly Beach State Park on the Central Oregon coast is one of my favorite places to run away to. This state park offers year-round camping, including Yurts to rent. They have an information center to collect all sorts of goodies. But, my oasis is the beach.
Drive down, walk under the bridge, and take a deep breath. It's fairly secluded and the expanse of sandy beach is terrific for walking, lounging, and hunting for agates.
Cape Lookout Trail - 12 miles SW of Tillamook, OR.
Here's a cozy little hideaway for lovers. You'll be happy that you took the short hike to this lovely honeymoon spot.
The views from the lookout are amazing and it's a perfect place for a romantic picnic and a cuddle and a kiss or four. The beach at the trail end below the sheer cliff walls makes this a gorgeous place to watch the sun go down and enjoy a peaceful time together.
To get there, take Hwy 6 towards Tillamook. Turn Left at Main Ave/US-101 S, Turn right at 3rd St. Continue on Netarts Hwy W, take a slight left at Whiskey Creek Rd to Cape Lookout State Park. Go past the campground and up the hill to Cape Lookout trail head.
The Astoria Column - Astoria, OR.
Sitting high atop Coxcomb Hill and offering panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the Oregon and Washington Coast mountain ranges, Columbia River and the city of Astoria itself, this 125-foot tall column is a place to cuddle and enjoy the quiet. Make your way to the very top and enjoy the solitude with one another.
The Astoria Column was built in 1926 and the fascinating artwork that surrounds the column (known as sgraffito) is an Indian art form that combines painting and carving into the concrete.
It is open from dawn until dusk. The on-site gift shop and information center hours vary, depending on the season. This one-of-a-kind structure is a must-enjoy honeymoon spot when you visit Astoria. For more information, call (503) 325-2963.

Devil's Punchbowl State Park - Otter Rock, OR.
Just eight miles north of Newport, off Hwy 101, you'll find an amazing place for snuggling up to one another. During storms, the mighty Pacific Ocean waves slam into a hollowed-out rock that is shaped like a huge punch bowl. The punch bowl was probably created by the collapse of the roof over two sea caves, then shaped by wave action. You'll marvel as the water churns and swirls in this large, nature-made caldron. This is a very popular honeymoon spot among lovers. Also, a great photo opp, so bring the digital along.
The park is also very popular for whale watching. You'll want to have your binoculars to spy on these remarkable creatures breaching the waters.
Covered Bridges of the Oregon Coast - Lincoln and Coos County
Travel between the 5 beautiful covered bridges that grace the Oregon Coast. Walking, hand-in-hand, through these terrific romantic spots will relax you both and flame the fire in your hearts for one another. Oo-la-la! ;)
Visit the Covered Bridges page to find out where to find them.
ROMANCE IN THE AIR!
Seaside Helicopters - Seaside, OR.
Board a helicopter and take a romantic flight for two, enjoying the beautiful sights of the Oregon Coast. Seaside flights and Cannon Beach flights are awesome, but the Sunset flight would be absolute perfection for a honeymoon trip or a proposal. Now THAT would be something to remember!
Yaquina Head Lighthouse - Newport, OR.
North of Newport, off the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, is this romantic lighthouse. The tower, which is 93 feet high, is the tallest on the Oregon Coast. For a perfect honeymoon spot while visiting, make your way up to the lantern watch room and enjoy the magnificent panoramic sites as the seagulls fly by and the waves crash below you. Get some quality kissing done!
Take a tour of this wonderful, old lighthouse for $2 - $5 per person.
Cannon Beach Bakery - Cannon Beach, OR.
The home of the famous Haystack Bread and listed as "One of the Best Places to Kiss," Cannon Beach Bakery has been catering to visitors since the 1950's and is the perfect honeymoon spot to hide for an hour or so. The cozy atmosphere lends itself to the whole small town experience. Grab your sweetie and stop in for an early morning muffin and cup of delicious, Oregon Coast coffee. Mmmmmm.... ;)
They also offer a deli serving sandwiches on their fresh-baked breads. If you're thinking of that special beach wedding, they'll be more than happy to design and bake your wedding cake.
240 N. Hemlock
Cannon Beach, OR 97110
