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.

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
