Beach Bonfires

Bonfire at the beach, Rockaway Beach, Oregon

On a clear summer evening, the beach is speckled with bonfires both large and small. Beach Bonfires are a tradition here, and a great way to enjoy the beach even after the sun goes down. Remember though to follow a few beach rules to ensure your bonfire is fun and safe for everyone:

Safety Rules

  • Use small pieces of wood only. Large logs are prohibited
  • Build your bonfire west of the vegetation line, and away from all beach grass and driftwood
  • Be sure to dose with water when you’re finished. Do not just smother with sand, as the fire may smolder for several hours and burn someone who steps on it.

Thanks for being courteous to others and following the safety rules!
