Explore the pristine Oregon North Coast beaches of Seaside, Cannon Beach, Warrenton, and Gearhart - only 90 miles west - to enjoy kite flying, clamming, surfing, windsurfing, boogie boarding and skim-boarding. These charming beaches offer treasures to the beachcomber, and the rewards are greatest after a blustery North Coast storm. Rooster Rock State Park and Sauvie Island, freshwater beaches on the Columbia River, offer miles of sandy beach within 45 minutes of Portland.
Cannon Beach.Ranked 7th of the "World's Best Beaches" by the Travel Channel, Cannon Beach offers vacation fun and charming coastal ambiance. The scenic beach features Haystack Rock - one of the largest monoliths in the world - and protected tidepools brimming with marine life. Cannon Beach is home to Ecola State Park, one of the most beautiful places to view Oregon's Coast. Enjoy a terrific vantage point on the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, one mile out to sea. Art galleries and fresh seafood abound in the charming town parallel to the beach.
Seaside Beach.An old-fashioned family beach, Seaside’s miles of white, sandy beach are ideal for beachcombing, surfing, kite flying, riding surreys and clam digging. Visit during summer and attend the beach volley ball tournament or the Hood-to-Coast Relay. At night, the beach is dotted with bonfires until dawn. Across the river, the northernmost end has sandy beach, sand dunes, a viewing platform, and the Estuary Trail. Kids love the beach playground. During the winter, Seaside’s terrific atmosphere and glorious sunsets beckon you.
Cove Beach.Ocean Vista Drive leads to Cove Beach, which is a surfer’s heaven. Take Avenue U to this quaint beachside drive past interesting, old cottages, and watch the beach change from sandy strands to bulkier cobblestones.
Gearhart Beach.Drive onto Gearhart Beach, between Seaside and Warrenton just shy of Fort Stevens State Park, where driving your car on the 10-mile stretch of beach is legal. The Beach Access at Pacific Way goes to Gearhart’s tiny downtown, where an attractively decorated gallery sits.
Tillamock Head.Between Seaside and Beach, Tillamook Head - with Ecola State Park at its crest - offers scenic picnic spots, viewpoints and hiking trails. Tillamook Head’s hiking trails are accessible from Seaside and Cannon Beach - a 6 mile hike either way. Enjoy breathtaking views from cliffs, hidden spots in the forests, and remnants of an old army bunker in the brush along the trail. To get to the trailhead, take Avenue U to the end and follow Ocean Vista Way up the hill, where you’ll discover amazing views of the cove.
Sunset Beach & Park.This popular Oregon beach and park is about a ½ mile west of Highway 101 between Seaside and Warrenton. Vehicles are allowed on the beach and there’s a freshwater lake for swimming. As you drive Highway 101, stop at roadside farm stand selling flowers, eggs, honey and fresh produce.
Del Rey Beach.Head to Del Rey Beach where trails abound over sand dunes, driving on the beach is legal and dogs are welcome.
