  • One of the "highlights" on the West coast of the US. This extraordinary coastline that stretches over many kilometres and penetrates far inland. There are livelier and also very lonely sections on this coast. And each section invites you to hiking. At low tide, one can venture far beyond and join the seagulls, who are there in large numbers in the air or on the shaft on the way. You can experience a completely untouched nature and if you have a bit of luck, you feel occupied only with itself, surrounded by water and sand all alone in this world. A wonderful feeling.

  • Beautiful Oregon Coast. Some of the best riding around! Kids, Adults, Extremists. Great for pictures, picnics, hikes, camping. Please ride safely, know your limits. Watch out for others. 
  • Lots of sand dunes to explore and areas for dune buggys and quads. Places to picnic and just relax and enjoy the area. 
  • To put it simply, these dunes are awesome! They are really fun to run down (and a struggle to climb :) ) and the sand is really fine and nice for bare feet. There is no litter anywhere to be seen which is a really big plus. I hiked the dunes to the beach which I would really recommend doing: it's really rewarding and only takes about 30 minutes to get there. Have fun!
  • We couldnt find where to rent the buggies, so we ended up walking in the dunes. There is no signaling and we reach the buggie tracks. It was fun, we where all alone.
  • For Coos Bay/North Bend, the beach area here, called Horse falls, is the ideal beach to stroll along. Majestic views. If you go to walk the beach, go to your left when you are looking at the beach as it is safe from vehicles and atvs.
  • Simply the best dunes riding in the country. Open bowls, beach riding, trails through vegetation, chutes and spectacular views. It's awesome. I love it here.
  • This is such a unique and awesome experience. It is a must-see for any person visiting the Oregon coast. Highly encourage a visit to the Dunes!
