This park is one of our favorite places to go on the coast. Even on a holiday weekend you can find spots to be isolated and alone. The beach is wide and you can walk for a long long time in either direction. Few people,...More

Very nice, clean and quiet beach. At the parking area, a short walk over the sand dunes and enjoy a long walk by the ocean.

Grassy dunes, long stretches soft sand with mild waves makes for great day of Oregon beach fun. No facilities other than portal potties in parking area so bring on food and things on which to sit. Short hike from parking lot to beach.

This beach is beautiful! Not very crowded and lots of room to run and explore. We watched the sunset and it was amazing. Worth the visit.

Take the paved road into Bob Straub and park in the lot at the end of the road. Walk over the dunes to discover an isolated beach which seems to go on forever. Great place for dogs to run, find sand dollars or just to...More

We found this beach by accident. It has a nice parking lot with a easy hike up to the top of the sand dunes and then down the other side to the beach. There are bathrooms at the parking lot area. The beach was clean...More

As a local, this is our family favorite. Started coming here about a year ago when we were new to the area and it's never crowded. Love bringing our dogs here for a run on the beach or a hike along the trails. Just be...More
