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.

Spent over two hours on this beach looking through tidal pools for various sealife and wandering around the rocks. Walk down not bad at all. Very expansive beach. Lots of birds to watch and the seals were playing merely 20 feet from the shore. Nice place to watch the sunset too.

If you're in Newport take a few minutes and drive south. We found ourselves with two kids spending the better part of two days exploring tide pools, climbing and walking the spectacular beach looking for treasures. Impressive picture opportunities, although it can be very windy even in the middle of summer.

We pulled into the parking lot just South of Yachats and found a very easy flat walk leading us beside Seal Rock, a typical basalt upcropping just off the coast. Surf pounds past and birds wheel overhead, guarding their nests. Murrelets, gulls, comorants, and more are very near. No seals, though. We swung back north and visited the fudge shop... More

Located on Highway 101 just ten miles south of Newport, Oregon, Seal Rock State Park was one of our major wildlife destinations-the seals! True, the beach itself offered the usual gorgeous Oregon scenery, as well as viewing various sea birds. However, on this particular gray day, both weather-wise and in our hearts, the seals were absent-obviously hanging out and dozing... More

Ive seen much better beaches for tidepools and I was unlucky to see no seals. Mostly saw anemones, very little starfish...it is pretty and lots of rocks to climb on and park rangers are nice here...not a great beach for dogs

Our first time here and will not be our last. We saw seals on rocks and a variety of different birds. Bring your binoculars and camera and keep your eyes out on the rocks. Go at low tide so you can see tidepools and be closer to the rocks. Worth a stop and parking is free and they have clean... More
