First, let me say that there is no one "best" spot to capture sunset photographs while you are in Coos Bay. The sunsets are as varied as the weather. I can, however, tell you of a few of my favorite spots to take sunset pictures. Cape Arago Highway (located very close to the beaches) is my recommended starting point. As you travel the highway you will get your first real view of the Pacific as the trees begin to thin along the road. Keep heading south and you will come to some great places to take pictures such as: Sunset Beach State Park; Bastendorff Beach; Simpson Reef and many stops in-between each of the locations.
