We stopped by Cape Kiwanda because we had heard that it's famously lovely. Sandstone cliffs with brilliantly colored layers and lots of sea caves are tempting to explore. We got there just past high tide on a hot day, and found it very, very popular. The cool air from the sea was really refreshing. Fencing surrounds the tops of the cliffs with dire warnings of danger beyond, largely ignored by visitors. We kept well away from the cliff edges, where a teen had died in a fall just a few nights before, but did venture a little past the fencing where it was safest. There is a large sand dune which is laborious to climb. But Jasper found it fun to descend, as long as you are rolling.
