Gives Big Sur a run for its money! With numerous pullouts, parking areas, and miles of hiking trails, one could easily spend a whole day here. Impressive seastacks, wind-swept trees, isolated beaches, and all sorts of driftwood to explore, plus not crowded at all in the middle of Spring Break!

There are plenty of hiking trails and vista points to visit. Ample parking and free access to the park.

Samuel Boardman has tons of wonderful beaches as well as hikes. One of our favorite to the dogs is Whale's Head Beach. It is a fairly long for the area and is only accessible by car on one end. This makes letting your dogs run off leash very safe. Local dog owners like to bring their dogs here for that... More

This is the Oregon Coast at it's finest! The sea stacks here are colossal. The waves crashing upon them was an awesome site to behold! We had the whole beach to ourselves on this cloudy February day. gray and cloudy as it was this beach still was one of the most beautiful sites of our vacation!

One rock formation after another lines this section of the Oregon Coast. You want to stop almost every mile to get out and enjoy the view and to take photos.

We always like to leave plenty of time for walks and drives along the beach and this winter type weather didn't disappoint. Excellent vistas.

There's so much to see here that you could spend the whole day exploring. Be sure to bring your camera, and good walking/hiking shoes. Paths range from easy to "oh-my-gosh-I'll-never-make-it!"

There is a seal colony, tide pools and swallows nesting on the big rocks... and no one was there. Take the time to walk left from the parking/ picnic area. May be some streams running down to the ocean but GO!
