Cape Arago LighthouseSituated along the southern coast of Oregon's Chief's Island off Gregory Point, sits the Cape Arago Lighthouse just west of Coos Bay. Easily recognizable due to its distinct fog horn and signature three white flashes every 30 seconds, the lighthouse stands at 44 feet above sea level and was first illuminated in 1934. Although it is not open to the public, visitors can get a glimpse and take pictures of this historic Oregon landmark from a few different vantage points. Head to Shore Acres State Park and embark on a hike to Yoakam Point for picturesque views of the lighthouse. It also can be more closely viewed from Lighthouse Beach or the bridge on the north end of Chief's Island.
