Hug Point

Hug Point site use to be a stagecoach road that ran along the beach before the coast highway was put in. Travelers had to hug the edge of the cliff to stay safe from the ocean – thus the name of the site- Hug Point. Incredible sea caves carved into the burnt colored sandstone are ready to be explored, but you must be mindful of the tides so you are not left stranded.

We were lucky that the tide was out when we arrived, so we were able to get all the photos we wanted. We only spent a short time here as we had to get to Tillamook. We planned to see the Tillamook Creamery. and then on to our hotel in Newport.

Strange green plants growing near Hug beach and other coastal areas.
