About Pacific City

Just two hours’ drive away from Portland in Oregon, Pacific City is in South Tillamook County. Regarded as part of the famous 'Oregon Coast' and facing out into the Pacific Ocean, the city spans the Nestucca River. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

Its beach is at the point of a natural breakwater which makes the ocean there an excellent spot for surfing and fishing, so bring your gear.

The birthplace of Pelican Brewery, the pub and brewery can still be found located near the beach today. Why not go try some?

What to do

Stroll along the beach at Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area. A 'must see' while in the area, it's a great spot for dune racing and tide pool exploring.

Sample local varieties of wine at the Twist Wine Company. A $5 tasting session is free when you buy a bottle.

Charter a fishing boat and try your hand at some reel casting out in the ocean. Cod, rockfish and crab - it's all out there; just a case of catching it and taking it home for dinner!

Saddle up your steed cowboy-style and go trekking with a guided group of riders across the area's lovely and long Green Acres Beach. Best for beginners or inexperienced riders.

Learn to fly with the Team Fly Halo Team. By 'fly' we mean paragliding. Not for the faint-hearted, but tons of fun for those who don't mind heights and are seeking an adrenalin rush.
