The southern Oregon coast is a must-see destination for anyone living in or visiting the Pacific Northwest. With rugged shorelines, wild and scenic rivers, delicious seafood, and mysterious forests, there is surely something to please any adventurer.

Located in tiny Gold Beach, Oregon, the Pacific Reef Hotel is an excellent base camp for exploring all the nearby sights. With your choice of ocean view rooms, spacious condos, and economy rooms, you're sure to find the right space for your needs and budget. The hotel has a spa room, hot tub, barbecue area, koi pond, and conference center.

But the most unique feature of the hotel is the Adventure Theater. By day, the theater screen is transparent, allowing you to soak in views of the sand dunes and ocean behind the hotel. After dark, the screen lights up with the evening's program. Sit in the outdoor amphitheater or enjoy the show from your ocean view balcony. Each evening, the theater plays a series of short videos showcasing southern Oregon's natural beauty. You'll learn about local hot-spots, enjoy nature photography, and get inspired to plan the next day's itinerary.

While you're in the area, be sure to scramble down to Secret Beach, take a jet boat up the Rogue River, visit the Cape Blanco Lighthouse, and look for Sasquatch.

A profound concept originally envisioned by governor Oswald West, in 1967 the Oregon legislature ultimately realized his vision of making the entire Oregon Coast forever open to the public in a piece of landmark legislation titled the Oregon Beach Bill, officially making all 363 miles public land. "The People's Coast" is truly a one-of-a-kind coastline, a unique blend of mountains and rocky stacks, towering old growth forests, marine sanctuaries, tide pools and kelp forests, charming towns, historic fishing communities, world-class golfing, breweries, and simply jaw-dropping scenic beaches.
