NEWSWEEK Readers’ Choice Awards: Best Waterfront Hotel in the U.S. | Vote for Headlands by March 20th >


ADVENTURE IS NEVER THE SAME. For some, it’s the rush of a heart-pumping hike on a coastal trail with views of the Pacific. Or sharing a beach bonfire with your sweetheart on a moonlit Northwest night. For others, it’s the inner journey of beach yoga, followed by a meditative hike across the dunes. Whether you find your escape on a bike, beach towel, or pillow-top bed, Headlands and Oregon’s North Coast offer a multitude of adventures to feed your soul. It’s your Oregon Coast getaway, so you get to choose whether you want to stay in for a spa treatment or a private yoga session, in-room dining or date night at Meridian Restaurant & Bar. Or, head out and explore our local picks for trail hikes, kayak paddles, beach bonfires, and more. Relaxing or exhilarating, the North Coast has options for all types of travel for every season. Our Adventure Coaches are avid explorers of the Oregon Coast and love to share their discoveries. See what we have scheduled while you’re at the coast and book a private adventure with your personal guide for a trail hike, bike tour, or an adventure you design together.
