Seal Rock is great to experience in any weather. In the sunshine you may see a variety of sea mammals and birds. During a storm the waves crashing on the rocks is breathtaking. If you are lucky enough to experience a lightning storm, you will see some very amazing views.

Great views from Hwy 101 turnouts of the Pacific, the beach and offshore rocks. Great spot for watching sunsets. On really low tides, the tidepools are easy to access and full of great critters.

We spent a couple of hours - go at low tide - watching the ocean surf ramming onto the huge (one is actually massive) rocks. Watching the seals climb up the rocks for some rest and seeing the birds nesting in the rock crevices was great. Awesome tidepools like the other reviewers said, with lots of sea anemones and starfish.... More

Little hard to get to now, what with path washouts and little State money to repair them. But if you can, and are willing, to climb over the lower rocks to reach the beach, you've a treat. Best place to be at low tide in Lincoln County. Love it. And sunset photos - don't miss your opportunity for fabulous ones... More

You can see hundreds of starfish and anemone when the tide is out. If you walk far down the beach and around the rocks you find another large beach area with great tidal pools. This is the best place we found to see the starfish. A minus tide is even better for viewing. The beach is also a nice place... More

Spent three days exploring the tide pools. Seals in the surf, a heron fishing, starfish, sea anemones, and all sorts of sea creatures. Be sure to visit at low tide.

This was a wonderful morning in the fog on a great stretch of beach with really nice tidal pools. There were no seals when we were there and too many people, but off season this has real promise.

Don't forget the Brian McEneny Woodcarving gallery when you are in Seal Rock. Two large buildings filled with beautiful woodcarvings made with local woods. Located on the north end of Seal Rock next to the Seal Rock Espresso and Bakery. Surrounded by a number of Art shops with working artists, Seal Rock offers glass blowing, stone sculpture, grafite sculpture, carved... More

My family and I stopped here to walk around on our way to Newport, Oregon, and we weren't disappointed! This was one of our best wayside stops, as the beach is fairly well protected from strong ocean winds by the large rocks, so one has a little more leisure time before getting burned by the sea winds. The trail leading... More

We walked down to the beach and found some great tide pools. Very cold and windy, even in July! I wished I read about the agates before going; we definitely would have looked for those. Nice place to take photos.
