Loved this place. We took the shorter, steeper way with small children and they did fine. You do have to scramble down a big rock at the end, which was tricky with the toddlers, but well worth it.

This a fun trail, that makes a beautiful place to watch to sun go down.

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
