N. Pacific & NW 13th

Beach access is at the end of 13th. There is no formal parking area, so you must park on the street if you can find a place. Residential homes are quite close together in this area and streets are narrow, so parking can be a challenge. You will find parking much easier at other access points nearby.


NW 19th Ave.

Take 19th west off N. Miller St. to reach this designated access. You will find a parking area that can potentially accommodate about 20 vehicles. The access is a sandy path flanked by dune grass on either side. A gentle sand path leads down to the beach.


NW 23rd Ave.

Take NW 23rd from U.S. Highway 101. The beach access is at the end of the street. You will find a small parking area. The sandy access path is quite narrow as it passes through thick Manzanita bushes and Shore Pines. It climbs slightly up and to the left and sometimes narrows so tightly that the plants will brush against you as you go. When you get to the beach, there is a sharp drop-off of about 4 feet to the sand below.
