Hug and Go Kiss at Hug Point
Aptly named… Hug Point, located mere yards from the Arch Cape Inn, really IS one of the best places to kiss on the North Oregon Coast.
At low tide, walk around the point to discover stunning caves, waterfalls and tide pools.
Slip in to one of the caves… and steal a kiss.
While the “Hug” part of the name may lead one to associate with “Kiss”, in reality, the name for this Oregon State Park derives from a couple of other interesting possibilities, still subject to interpretation. The main theory is that a road was carved into the cliff, much of which still exists today. This early road, along with grab holes, allowed early travelers to ‘hug the point’, as they made their way down the coast to Arch Cape.
