#3 of 6 in Nature in Newport
Cape Foulweather is a basalt outcropping 500ft above the Pacific Ocean on the central coastline of the U.S. state Oregon in Lincoln County south of Depoe Bay. The cape is notable as the first promontory on the northwest coast of New Albion (as the area was then known) to be sighted and named by Captain James Cook, while on his third voyage around the world. His March 7, 1778 journal entry reads:
The cape can be viewed from Otter Crest State Scenic Viewpoint.

  • Cute lighthouse and store inside with unique gifts. The views are outstanding. Right off of hwy.101 between Lincoln City and Newport but closer to Newport. Stop to whale watch certain times of year...  more »
  • This is a loop where one does not have to do much walking to see jaw-dropping views. One of the easiest drives to see the raw beauty of the coast.  more »
