Gorgeous sunset. Not crowded, peaceful place! Not a sandy beach, rocks so youll have to bring a chair or sit on a log.

This is a fun beach to explore, hike, and check out caves, tide pools and a little water fall. I spent 2 hours here and could definitely have spent more!

When the tide is out you can do some fun exploring and hiking along the coast, and see some of the old rail tracks that ran along the coast line.

The reason for 3 stars: anyone with mobility concerns cannot get to the beach, although picnic tables and restrooms are ADA accessible. Hug Point is loaded with Oregon history and wondrous natural features, but it's unreasonable to expect someone with those concerns to wait while...More

We stopped in while driving back from Tillamook. It was a very windy and cloudy day, but the view was amazing. Get out and go to the beach, enjoy the waved crashing into the cave, and walk the trail above the water. Beautiful!

A small quiet beach located off highway 101. You park in a forest and a short walk later you are standing on the beach. The north end of the beach has a small cave where you are sheltered from the wind.

This was our third trip to Oregon, but our first time to stop at Hug Point. It was so cool to explore the small caves and tide pools at low tide!

I would say it depends on the limited mobility. The road down to the beach is paved and a little steep. There are a few wooden steps to go down. Once you are down at the beach you can walk to the rocks and peak in a few of... More

I'm not sure the official answer but we did see some people that started a fire inside one of the caves.
