Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area is a state park 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 Chief Kiawanda Rock (note different spelling than Cape Kiwanda) is located 12 mile (0.80 km) southwest of the cape. It is one of three features along the Oregon Coast that are called "Haystack Rock,"[2] though the one in Cannon Beach is more widely known.
