Beachcombing

The Siuslaw National Forest provides access to some of Oregon’s most spectacular public beaches.

Look for sand dollars and glass floats on broad sandy beaches, agates in quiet rocky coves and sea life living in wave pounded basalt tide pools.

Seasonal conditions run from wild winter storm surges to extreme summer low tides. Beach safety is a must! Know the tides, beware of large “sneaker” waves and rolling logs, and never turn your back to the ocean.
