Oh the Oregon coast is just beautiful! Definitely recommend this! We drove down the PCH and had the best views and many stops along the way.

This is a not to miss stop while touring the coast! Large parking lot, a bathroom and a few picnic tables. Just a short walk down to the scenic beach with lots of room for walking and relaxing on the beach. :)

We stopped for a few minutes on the way to Cannon Beach. We arrived well before the New Year Day crowds. What a treat. Rocks are stunning and the beach is very pleasant.

Beachcombers delight, special place to meditate. Windy beach, the type to remove the shoes and walk foot deep in the ocean waves. More serene than crowded. Find a dune, sit,comtemplate. Bring a windbreaker or coat.
