Lots to explore during low tide and tons of bird watching opportunities around haystack rock and the nearby rivers. Don't forget sunscreen and have fun!

Very windy so bring a jacket! Low tide is the best time to visit so you can see the tide pools

This is really a walk on the beach rather than a hike, but still beautiful!

Beautiful, dog-friendly beach. If you get to Haystack Rock at low tide, there are tons of cool critters to see in the tide pools. Lots of Lions Mane jellyfish on the beach right now. Really cool to see. Just don’t touch them even if they appear dead. They can apparently still sting you.

Beautiful beach you can spend hours exploring and just walking. Bring your mountain/fat tire bike during low tide and check out the tide pools at haystack rock.

Iconic view from the beach of Haystack Rock, great walk with the family. Clean, parking was rather easy on a weekday during 4th of July holiday week. Crowd was not too bad.

Beautiful flat beach, great for games of football, bocchi. Lots of dogs on the beach, many unleashed. If you take a dog, make sure they get along with other dogs, or you will have a tough time. Fires are allowed on the beach, nice for a chilly evening in March. Make sure to plan your visit around the tides, not much walking space at hide tide.

If you want to experience something unforgettable just come and experience the haystack for yourself. If you're lucky enough to get a good picture of a puffin on your walk please share it. Great parking and restaurants in the area so bring the entire family.

It's a nice beach but over the years it has gotten pretty crowded, but it is expected for a beach as nice as this one :) for a less crowded beach you would have to walk or bike southwards!

Crowded. Typical beach walk. The farther south you walk, the more the crowd thins out. Good picnic spot.

Very popular because of Haystack Rock: obviously very busy. There are a lot better hikes in the area. Snap a pic with Haystack Rock and get out ;)

We drove up the California and Oregon Coast. We stopped at this beach because theGoonies were filmed here. The beach was crowed and ugly to be honest. I’d skip it if you are trying to see many things.
