Best time to go is at low tide. I have been there at low and high tide. Both worth seeing. Low is the best experience to go exploring all the nooks and crannies mother nature has created for us to take care of and enjoy. Secret Beach has stolen my heart.

Loved this hike! We hiked on a weekday and had the beach to ourselves for an hour. Be sure to go at low tide for the best experience. Steep going back up the trail but worth it! Probably the most beautiful spot I've seen on the Oregon coast, and that's saying A LOT! We also had a cute sea lion swim up and check us out as we were standing on the cliffs above. Such a great experience! Do not miss this if you are on the Southern coast!

Didn't have time to make it all the way down because we got there too late, but ended up at a lookout peninsula that was absolutely gorgeous. Would definitely come back earlier in the day to go all the way down to the beach!

Three ways to get there....straight in short or you can go in from the north or south.

There are two ways to get here. the long way is parking at thunder cove right after the actual pinpoint for this trail. The other is a much shorter but steeper trail it is in a small parking area that isn't easy to turn into with a guardrail on the left side of the road. there is a space that is hidden from the road like a hobbit hole. Trail is quick. beaches are awesome. Not the best for tidepooling but I would visit again for sure.

Hiked the longer trail from the Thunder Bay turnout. Then missed the trail sign marking the junction. Other hikers came down another trail from a parking area north of Thunder Bay trailhead. Stunning beach with a waterfall

Hard to find the trailhead but if you are headend north on 101 it is shortly after the natural bridges viewpoint. Look for the guardrail on the left side to end and there is a small parting area right at the end of the guardrail. There are two trails one right and one left of the lot. Take the one on the right and it is a short hike down to the beach. Plan to go at low tide and you can reach all three beaches. Waterfalls, sea stacks and just stunning views!

Couldn't find the trail head!! GPS took us to Natural Bridges lookout which didn't show a secret trail option. A trail was blocked by a sign preventing us from going through suggesting we would damage wildlife. How do you reach this trailhead?

The hike is strait down the hill to the beach. Not much of a hike but one of the coolest beaches to explore. Massive waves at high tide. Can teach 3rd beach at low tide. I'll be going here every time I'm in Brookings!
