About as quick as it gets . . . a few feet off Highway 101 at the south entrance to Port Orford, Oregon. A parking lot, a historical sign, the old prop from a ship wreck, restrooms and a visitor's center that is usually open. And a good restaurant overlooking the view. The beach is excellent for walkers and photographers but those on a tight schedule can enjoy and photograph the view from the parking lot and then be quickly on the road without any fuss. Historical Battle Rock itself is immediately below the parking lot and has a tunnel thru it for the beach walkers. The beach also is popular with surfers, a good place for beginning surfers to practice. And about half a mile down the beach the bigger waves attract more experienced surfers. The grassy area next to the parking lot offers a place to relax or have a picnic. And there is an interpretive/information circle at the east end of the parking lot next to the information center.
