The beach is beautiful. Unbelievable. We were there during winter and the waves were rough. Not swimmable, even if we had wetsuits. We did get hit by a rogue wave that came 100 yards further up the beach than any other wave for the hour we were there, so watch carefully. Also, the sea gulls are relentless. We forgot to... More

We love walking along this beach,hiking up Harris Butte or along the trails. Last year I spotted my first whale and her baby just off shore, such an amazing experience! Beautiful sunsets too...so blessed to live close by!

Good location to town yet quiet as far as road noise. Much of park is seasonally closed and construction going on. No yurts available at this time. Close to beach with good access. Mature landscaping with one row of sites featuring ocean views

This is a beautiful beach with a number of sea stacks and very few people. It is just north of Brookings right of Hwy. 101. Make a day of it and also visit Lone Ranch Beach, Samuel Bordman, and Cape Sebastian Corridor further north on Hwy. 101.

I wanted San Antonio or my second home of Hawaii for this Holiday week. Work keeps us closer to home.... Got lost finding our way back to our hotel from the local Dutch Bros coffe and stumbled upon this beach. I'd read previous reviews and we thought.... "Ok! Let's give it a whirl!" A Tuesday, today, and it was so... More

When we go to Brookings we always take the kids here to play in the water. The soft sand and lack of surf allows you to walk out and enjoy the water. The water is shallow due to the surf not washing the sand away so you have lots of water to play in.

There is a great handicap ramp all the way to the beach. Lots to see and explore. Loads of camera ops and endless beach for long walks.

We arrived late in the day do we only had a few hours to walk around. The tide was out so we were able to access much more then when the tide is in. There were many people while we were there and it didn't have that crowded feeling. Plenty of parking, great views, beautiful end to our day.
