There is 3 miles of beautiful sand beach accessible at the end of Pacific Ave, at Bob Straub state park or at Cape Kiwanda. Those who enjoy a short walk can have a large expanse of beach to themselves. At Cape Kiwanda you will often see fishermen launching their dories (fishing boats) through the surf. It’s fun to watch but keep out of their way. Cape kiwanda is fun to climb and provides a great view. Do not ignore the warnings and climb the cliffs, they can be crumbly!

Fishing and Boating

The Nestucca river flows through town and is a very popular fishing river. You can fish from the bank in many places or use one of the 3 public boat launches. Also there are charter outfits that will take you on the river or ocean. Ask us, we know most of them.
