Beach is generally not as crowded as other beaches. Interesting rock formations to view and photograph. Pretty little waterfall accessible during low tide

Driving north up the Oregon coast has so many amazing beaches you just want to spend a day at each one. This has more rock formations and amazing scenery. Another must stop and see spot on your drive.

This park is a must see attraction if you are passing along the Oregon coast. The rock formations are so beautiful and majestic. you can spend a whole day here. The caves, waterfall, the ocean and the rocks makes this place unique.

Explore the tide pools and the caves. There is a small waterfall and when the sun hits just right makes for great photos. Is close to CB with a short drive.

We were there at low tide and got to explore the caves and climb up to the waterfalls. Really up to you if you spend 15 minutes or two hours. Playing in the caves was enjoyable and there are some neat formations.

Enjoyed the tidal pools at low tide. Kids enjoyed exploring the caves. Small parking lot limits number of visitors to this location. The gulls were catching crabs and eating them on the beach. Great place for nature discovery.

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