Great view at sunset and high surf.

Stay off rocks. Even behind the rocks can be very hazardous as waves can come over the rocks with no notice. This is particularly true when you have water on both sides

Quiet part of the beach, you have to hike a bit, but the peacefulness and rock hunting is really good !

An incredible spot when wanting to view the ocean and all its power. A climbable sand dune shield the drive with many turnout where, with some effort, you can climb for a view of the Pacific.

The best part of Ocean Shores visit is the North Jetty. The rock wall makes the waves so much more great to watch. My Grandkids love this area also. There is always some kind of fort built out of drift wood there.

Had a great morning taking pictures and getting splashed by the ocean crashing over the rocks. Great for bird watching, clamming, or many other outdoorsy purrsuits.

Good place to watch the weather come in. And in November the weather is always comming in. Had a nice dirt/mud parking lot with lots of parking. Great place to sit and take in the waves

My favorite place to photograph driftwood! If you love to explore, this is the area of the beach with the most driftwood & shells. I could spend hours here.

Thanks to mother nature, we had a great splash show. Wicked waves explode over the rocks and create a nice view. We enjoyed the visit and recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind a bit of spray.

I've heard much about the North Jetty and wanted to check it out. This was an interesting, dramatic place to stroll and walk the dogs as we watched the powerful surf pounding on the rocks.

I noticed that some contributors are either locals or repeat visitors to Ocean Shores. My husband and I visited back in June. We are seriously thinking about retiring along the Oregon, Washington coast in a few years. Ocean Shores is a place we are considering. Can I ask for some help and advice from anyone that is willing to share.
