This was deemed one of the highlights of our week-long trip by my 12yo. Happily we got there around low tide, so we explored the tide pools for over an hour. It's a rugged, incredible beach. The fog started rolling in, and it was very moody. It's also fun to see the seals, on their rock. Highly recommend this.

Oregon's coastline can be all soft sand, or offer up truly spectacular jagged rock outcroppings and more. It was the latter we discovered at Seal Rock State Park, where there are aptly posted warnings about not getting too close to the sea lions! On a gorgeously sunny day, we arrived just an hour or two after low tide and there... More

We stopped here on our way down 101 and I'm glad we did! We were only there for about half an hour to explore and take some pictures but it was a great place to see the Pacific and hike down to the sand. It was foggy when we went but that made it even more fun!

Great for exploring tide pools, playing in sand, splashing in waves, watching seals and birds. There is a narrow path on the right among the brush to get down to the beach or a more dangerous one down the sand cliff to the left. The brush path has a slippery muddy spot at the bottom so be careful. Look for... More

Fabulous little beach with great tide pools! The parking lot is pretty small, so you have to time it just right, but it is worth the effort. The beach is accessible via a beautiful wooded trail that leads to the rocky cliff pathway. (It might be a bit steep for some.) Once on the beach there are many things to... More

Great sandy beach with tide pools along the shore. Beach access is just a short walking distance from the parking lot to the beach. Smaller sized parking lot, but people are coming and going. There may be a short wait. Restrooms available. Beaches along this Oregon coast area are usually windy. Today was no exception for the wind, but it... More

We rented a private, quiet house in Seal Rock and were able to walk to the State Park every day. The beach is really wide, even at high tide. The tide pools there are incredible! The south side of the park, where we walked to was much less crowded than the north side. There are mussels everywhere and for $7.00... More

Restrooms and access to the beach. Good view point on the way down to the beach. Access at the bottom is via rocks and logs so beware. Beach and views great. Beware - Lots of sand fleas!

This is one of those beaches that you won't believe actually exists outside of an inspirational break room poster, until you see it for yourself. Best enjoyed at low tide when the water is all the way out beyond the tall rocks and the tide pools are filled with anemonies and other critters. We tried several other area beaches and... More
