Oceanside is a cozy little hideaway located just off the Three Capes Scenic Route, South of Cape Meares, and North of Netarts. This community is built along an amphitheater-shaped hillside, overlooking a beautiful beach, and offers the ambiance of a quaint European village.
Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge is located just off shore of the beach in Oceanside and can be viewed from the windows of most vacation rentals. Three Arch Rocks have been named individually as well. The largest is Shag, the small, most westerly rock, is Storm Rock, and the middle one has two names: Finley Rock and Mid Rock.
At the northern-most end of Oceanside beach, is a tunnel through Maxwell Point. During low tides, the tunnel affords access to Tunnel Beach on the other side. Around the next point at the North end of Tunnel Beach, is Agate Beach, which can only be reached by going around the point on a minus tide. And yet another secluded beach to the North of the next point, during a minus tide, gives access to a natural cave which enters the cliff through one portal and forks into two exits near Short Beach, below Radar Road. This cave is called Lost Boy Cave, for a good reason, and its name provides proper warning to anyone venturing in when the tide turns.
