To easily get close to the wild surf try this beach just south of Florence, for free parking and undisturbed dunes flowing into an endless sandy beach. Or walk along the contained river watching surfers or fishing boats tackle the big waves that come in....More

Relative to other places to park and visit along the coast, this isn't my first choice. Granted there is lots of parking and you can see boats come in/out of the little harbor, but if you want a "real Oregon beach experience", pick other places...More

We had a great time climbing the dune to get to the beach. Once there, we were the only people in site. Lots of small parking lots, many with restrooms. Not the cleanest though.
