We were just there last Memorial Day week where we had negative tides in the mornings. The tidepooling was fantastic. It was a whole new world of sea creatures in great abundance.

Wear beach boots and step with care.

On our drive through the Samuel Boardman State Park we stopped and explored this beautiful and secluded beach with unique rock formations and tide pools. There are picnic tables and restroom facilities and a nice grass area that is very clean and plenty of parking. There is a gentle path to the beach which is just perfect for a get-a-way. Only one other couple was there when we arrived. There is nice wave action against the rocks and this provides a great photo opportunity. It was not our favorite stop because it's competition is the Arch rock and Natural Bridge, but it was very nice indeed. No fee.

Thanks to a good friend who lives in Brookings, she suggested we check out this beach that is kind of hidden in a little cove. If you are looking for someplace to enjoy the sand and water that is a little less windy, this would be the place. Not very good for kite flying however since the wind blowing into the cove isn't very predictable. :-)

Other reviews have said it all - this is a marvelous beach. I grew up in a California beach town, and even I was impressed. :)

Check the tide table and be sure to wear your rubber boots. Lone Ranch has wonderful pool tides to explore. A great education for your children.
