Take the Mail Boat (jet boat) ride up the Rouge River if you go to Gold Beach.
Nehalem Bay State is in the State Park and offers easy access to the Bay and Beach.
There are many options up and down the Northern Oregon coast.
Pacific City (walk to Beach and Town)
Nehalem Bay State ( walk to Beach and Town) Camping
Astoria (courtesy car to get you into town)
If you expand further north or south, even more options open up.
As noted, donít land on Oregon Beaches. They are public property and considered to be a highway, with a 25 mph speed limit in areas where they allow cars. The State Police and local Police patrol the beaches.
I grew up on the North Coast and have a home in Manzanita. PM your plans. If you end up there when we are over there, we can introduce ourselves.
