VIRTUAL TOUR OF FLORENCE
Cliffs Near Sea Lion Caves - at Sunset
 
 
 

Watch yourself here, this part of the road is winding and twisty, and rubbernecking at the greats vistas is easy while driving. But plenty of viewpoints lurk along the side of the road, allowing you dramatic views of the ocean and eventually a great aerial shot of the expanse of Baker Beach (Look for MP 181).

At sunset, these cliffs light up in fiery ways that are reminiscent of their volcanic origin (these are the remains of enormous lava flows that seared their way across prehistoric Oregon some 45 million years ago, eventually ending up in the sea).
