Oceanside, Oregon

Oceanside, Oregon, located just off US 101 on 131, has a famous agate hunting beach. One of the Oregon Coast's most beautiful settings, Oceanside is a must stop!

 

Be sure to get to Oceanside at low tide. This is when you can walk around the headland just to the North where the good agates are waiting! Walk south on the beach and you will likely find Sand Dollars. There are miles of uncrowded beaches. Nearby is Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1907. It's the site of our largest sea bird colonies, as well as a colony of sea lions.

Also nearby is Cape Meares and Cape Lookout State Park. At Maxwell Mountain you will most likely find hang gliders jumping off the 700 foot high point.
