  • Best beach in Oregon coast. The cove here protects you from the winds. You can lit up a fire and there is plenty of firewood around.
  • Been surfing here for 20 years plus. One of my favorite beaches in the world . No one used to come here and the beach was not crowded at all. Now with the huge influx of people to Oregon this place gets so crowded and there is no parking! To all you people who just moved here or just visiting please pack your trash out! Every time I go here lately I pick up all kinds of stuff on my way out , beer cans , wrappers , surf wax left behind. Please respect the Oregon coast! Ohh yea pick up your dogshit !
  • Take the trail to the secluded cove and beach. Waking across the bouncy hanging bridge is a treat.
  • Easy access via a short hike to secluded beaches and a great sample of coastal forest. Don't miss the turnoff!
  • Short non-strenuous hike to unspoiled glorious Oregon coast beach: Short Sand Beach!
