Oregon's Public Beaches

Oregon’s 362-miles of ocean beaches are open to all for exploring. Whether you're picnicking, soaking up the sun or watching a spectacular sunset, make sure your trip is a safe one. 

Visit Safe Ways to Explore the Beach to learn about sneaker waves, rip tides and drift logs.​

For more information about Oregon's beaches, including recreation FAQs (from dogs to driving and marine debris), history and more, visit the Ocean Shore State Recreation Area page.

Oregon’s beaches are protected nesting grounds for a small shorebird called the western snowy plover. During nesting season (March 15 – Sep. 15), some recreation activities may be restricted or prohibited in designated plover management areas. Nesting area locations and restrictions

Oregon Coast Trail is an iconic hiking route that stretches along the entire 362-mile Oregon coastline. The trail traverses sandy beaches, forested trails, stunning headlands, and 28 coastal towns. Some sections are disconnected, inconvenient, unsafe, or seasonally inaccessible and require careful route planning. Visit Oregon Coast Trail for more information.

Oregon Coast Trail Action Plan

A significant portion of the OCT follows the shoulders of roads and highways, such as U.S. 101. These gaps in the OCT can feel uncomfortable or unsafe and detract from the hiking experience. Some sections of the trail lack adequate supportive services and facilities, such as camping opportunities and potable water. This Oregon Coast Trail Action Plan describes how to remedy these gaps in the trail. This plan also addresses ways to improve trail amenities and services along the trail, including mapping and wayfinding, camping, restrooms, water crossing services, and a centralized trail information system.
