Tips

Take a break from the nearby redwood forests and stroll along the beach for a chance in scenery. This quick beach stroll is a nice break from the rugged redwood forest trails in the surrounding area. There are plenty of shells to examine and all kinds of Pacific Ocean flotsam washing up. What will you find?

It's illegal to collect driftwood from the beaches, so please enjoy it where it is...

Just a walk on the beach. Nothing too impressive. Was super foggy the day we did it.

How can a walk on the beach be less than 5 stars? It was smokey, but the beach was still great!

This is more a nice walk on the beach than what I would classify as a walk - but it is dog friendly and there aren't many in this area so I recommend it if you have dogs.

It is beautiful. I mean, it’s the Oregon Coast, what else can you expect? I have seen nicer beaches and better views. I freaked out when I jumped from a boulder and half of my leg sank in the sand. Go there for the sunset is always a good idea:).

Walking

Amazing beach walk; really nice! Easy access off Hwy 101, a paved parking area with restrooms, trash and recycling receptacles and a few picnic tables, some of which were "accessible"...We found it to be our favorite beach in the Crescent City area; the sand was immaculate, sand dollars were prevalent, interesting driftwood was plentiful...the ocean view, the breeze, the sun, the waves; it was all perfect today!

Great beach to walk... The beach is flat and firm and being a crescent shape it is far more protected than other beaches on the North Coast. The best in Norcal!

Great beach hike. The sand is nice and smooth and makes for a wonderful hike. You can go all the way down to the rocks and back.

Closed indefinitely due to slide. Might be better named Enderts Beach trail. The highway goes along Crescent Beach. The hike down the hill is Endert's Beach.

Nice little stroll with great views. If you're there the right time of the year the sand dollars are everywhere.

Backpacking

Option for backcountry camping at Enderts Beach nearby. If parking overnight, make sure to talk to the Park Rangers because there have been issues with cars getting broken into overnight. They'll let you park at one of their outposts. Great views. Wonderful sunsets.
