Unlike other basalt areas of Oregon's coast, Cape Kiwanda is formed from sandstone. This softer stuff is easily eroded and reformed, meaning the shape of the coastline at this section is constantly changing. A fenced in area gives you a guideline of where you can venture to safely, and from the headland you have spectacular views of the beach and the ocean. You can easily make your way down to the beach to explore pools left behind by the tides or to get a different vantage point of the sea stacks. There's also a small village next to the cape where you can grab lunch or do a little shopping.
