Pretty place to visit, lots of beach combing. Weather is usually better than in town. Seems like the locals go there.

I really liked this beach with the rocks and we saw the brown pelicans on the rocks but I didn't get to see any seals or sea lions, but thats ok, I also liked that people couldn't drive on this part of the beach. We came in the morning and the seagulls must wait there at that beach and eat... More

We parked on the cement and walked down a sand road/path that took us to the jetty. Wow, what a great veiw of the ocean and ships waiting to enter Grays Hardbor. Waves breached over the top of the jetty and moved towards the shore. Every 15 minutes or so a sneaker wave would role up the beach and send... More

Great views and lots of things to see , from Pelicans to ships. Great beach with lots of sand. Great place for kids to play and great place to look for sea shells.

Must visit, North Shore! The view, the tranquil experience... waves crashing the rocks, sea spray.. pretty easy climb. The beach is beautiful, deep sand. My boys 7 &11, loved exploring the caverns in between the rocks!

If you are looking for things to do, this is a must...plus it's free! I had a 15,18 and 20 yr old with me and they climbed the rocks for hours! even if it's not a clear day, it's totally worth coming here. Great photo opps!

My absolute favourite spot in Ocean Shores. I visited right as the sun was setting. This would be a perfect spot to bring your chair and just enjoy the views. Fishing boats pass behind the jetty and you can walk out along the rocks. The current was rather strong here as this is not the best place to swim. If... More

About 10 minutes south of Ocean shores is the north jetty. There is quite a bit of parking and some portable outhouses. Not a lot of car traffic here so it is nice for walking. Be very careful on the jetty rocks, they can be slick and there are lots of deep crags to fall into. It is nice to... More

A nice place to walk along the shore. No sea stacks or anything of particular interest however. The grassy sandy path was rather long compared to other access points.

A nice sandy beach right up to the Jetty, then over the Jetty ships and boats come in the channel and especially during stormy weather boats fight the current and swells as they pass by.
