It's a lovely little beach, and we spent a very long time just listening to the waves and walking the sandy beach.

Lone Ranch is one of our favorites...close to town (Brookings), tables with good views of the waves, especially good rock and driftwood finds, generally soft sand for barefoot strolls, and "tadah"...restrooms!

Best time to visit Lone Ranch is an hour before low tide. Walk all the way to the end past a couple of sea stacks. You will be greeted with great tide pools with sea anemones and star fish, hermit crabs and other interesting sea...More
