What a sweet spot on the central Oregon coast! There is not a lot of parking available, and the beach is rather small. There is a lot of rocky coast with abundant tide pools. A stream runs by the view point and empties into the ocean. The small cliff face is a geological wonder, showing an ancient river bed, lava flows, and sedimentary sandstone. High tide limits the seaside playground, but low tide opens up a wide swath of sand for the young and old to enjoy. This is not the typical agate beach, but I was able to find a few, which was a surprise. This is a day use area, and there is a pit toilet on site. It was clean, but the "pit" was very ripe with ammonia fumes that burned my eyes and throat. There are 2 picnic tables on site, protected from the ocean breeze by a low hedgerow. All in all, this is a great spot to enjoy the Oregon coast. I highly recommend it.
Parked on the South side of this natural area. Easy parking even though all the other place's lots were full. Came here to see the animal life in the tide pools which now does not exist for some reason. The tide pools still exist but they are only filled with barnacles, nothing else. The walk on the beach with my husband was lovely and the diversity of nature scape was very Interesting. There is also a little cave to explore.
I have found some Of my most favorite agates here. There is also some amazing scenery when the waves hit the rocks and sounds like a Tumblr when they go back out to The Ocean.
Very dog friendly! The area had a handful of people on a Sunday and allowed us to have a sense of privacy for an hour. Beautiful views and many cool things to see!
Gorgeous stop! There's a bridge and a little trail to the fresh water that goes into the ocean. Bathroom, picnic tables, and beach access.
