Look up the tide schedule and go at low tide to get around the point and be able to have the best views. Limited parking so go a little early and be patient. You may have to park on the HWY

This beach is not as crowded as Cannon Beach. It has caves to explore. The tide come in quickly so watch your belongings.

You can walk along this rock and see where the stagecoach wheels went! There are caves to explore (take a light!) and hidden beaches to walk.

Fun. Caves and waterfall on the beach. Artists painting on the beach. A few tide pools. We built sand castles and just strolled around. Visit at low tide to access all the caves. Our kids loved it.

I'm not sure the official answer but we did see some people that started a fire inside one of the caves.
