Located 12 miles southwest of North Bend and Coos Bay off U.S. Hwy 101, Cape Arago lighthouse stands 100 feet above the ocean on an islet just off Gregory Point.
It's light is atop a 44' tower that was illuminated in 1934. The present lighthouse is the newest in service of all the lighthouses on the Oregon coast.
However, earlier structures were built on the site in 1866 and 1908, both succumbing to weather and erosion. Cape Arago lighthouse is not open to the public,
but good views are available from the trail at Sunset Bay State Park south of the lighthouse.
