Oregon Coast Weather by Month

Best Time to Visit Oregon Coast

If you are after some summery weather the best time to visit are the months between June and September when temperature highs can even reach the upper 80s F. Summer is also the least rainy time of year. The proximity to the sea makes sure that even winters are relatively mild with temperatures in the 40s F allowing you to explore the incredible, beautiful and untouched nature all around.

The weather in spring and fall is also ideal for hiking in the mountains and nature reserves along the coast - make sure to bring some rain gear though as it does rain quite a bit! If you’re looking to see some of the enormous waves that accompany the Pacific storms, the best time is between December and February.

Things to know about Oregon Coast

The Highway 1 in California from San Francisco to Los Angeles is famously one of the most scenic roads in the world. If you head a bit further north you will hit the highway 101 along the Oregon Coast, which is much less known but might even top the highway 1 with its beauty! The highway 101 runs for a much longer distance than the highway 1 which means that you have to plan well ahead which parts exactly you want to see. The enormous advantage is that there aren’t any of the crowds that you would encounter in California.
