    There really isn't too much to write about the beach here. The beach is bordered by two short peninsulas on the north and south, so that in many cases it is not possible to walk too far on the beach. If you do walk on the beach, it will be at low tide, and there is a hazard of not being able to come back here unless you wind up waiting another half-day for another low tide.

    On the north side of the beach, the peninsula there has a shallow cave that has been carved out by the wind and waves. I would not suggest exploring unless you have made certain that it is safe to do so.

    Directly west and to the southwest there are some views of some of the rocks that contribute to making the Oregon Coast a very rough and dangerous place.

    Between the cliff overlooking the beach and the mid-tide line is mostly rocks and gravel, but beyond the mid-tide line to low tide is mostly sand. If you want to play in the sand here, you should take into account that at times there will be no exposed sand at high tide.

    The pit toilet facility is located at the parking lot.
