Very nice, clean and quiet beach. At the parking area, a short walk over the sand dunes and enjoy a long walk by the ocean.

Grassy dunes, long stretches soft sand with mild waves makes for great day of Oregon beach fun. No facilities other than portal potties in parking area so bring on food and things on which to sit. Short hike from parking lot to beach.

This beach is beautiful! Not very crowded and lots of room to run and explore. We watched the sunset and it was amazing. Worth the visit.

We found this beach by accident. It has a nice parking lot with a easy hike up to the top of the sand dunes and then down the other side to the beach. There are bathrooms at the parking lot area. The beach was clean...More
