This was our last stop of the day on our oregon coast trip, so we stayed here for sunset. Do this! It was a breathtaking time of day at Seal Rock Beach with the big sky and beautiful rock formations. Big wide beach too for playing, hanging out, or bringing a picnic.

There is easy access to a nice protected and clean beach. There is some opportunity to observe ocean critters in shallow tide pools. Parking is limited, but there is off-road parking about 300 yards south along the highway. Scenery is great. There are better parks along the central Oregon coast, but this one had a world class Japanese restaurant right... More

This was a nice beach, just off the highway with beautiful views and huge rock formations. We weren't lucky enough to see any seals or tide pools, but it was nice to get out for a walk. Bring your camera- the Oregon coast is so beautiful!

My girlfriend and I took my two boys, ages 6&7 hoping to see the tide pools. It was one of the prettiest places I've been to! We saw lots of starfish and other sea creatures! There are state park people walking around teaching you about everything! We all loved it! Just be careful because the rocks get sharp and you... More

Great access and a really nice protected beach. There are many tide pools with a lot of starfish, anenomes and other wildlife that would excite both adults and kids alike. At low tide, there is no better place to explore.

Nothing to say other than this was a piece of heaven on earth. Miles and miles of beautiful white sand. Dozens of pelicans perched on top of the huge rocks. Crashing wild waves. We hardly saw a soul on the beach so could just walk and walk and walk and feel like we were alone in all the majesty of... More

We were here on a very windy and cold day. The wind and waves were so loud! It was just beautiful! Great place for a short walk

This is a gr8 place between Waldport and Newport (mile marker 150.9) to get out and stretch your legs and view wildlife for a few minutes, watch a sunset, or bring a picnic & explore the tide pools at low tide for several hours. It's fun for kids of all ages. Take your binoculars and camera to spot seals playing... More

It had great walking, exploring! It was very clean. There was a fresh-water stream that ran into the salt water so our pups could drink after running.
