Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area is located in Pacific City, Oregon, United States. Cape Kiwanda is on the Three Capes Scenic Route, which includes Cape Meares and Cape Lookout. Hiking to the top of Cape Kiwanda allows views of Nestucca Bay to the south and Cape Lookout to the north.

A sea stack, named Haystack Rock is located 0.5 miles (0.8 km) south west of the cape. It is one of three features along the Oregon coast that bear the name.[2] Probably, the best known is the one in Cannon Beach.
