Oregon's Hillside Town on the Beach

Oceanside stays true to its name: the town is built on a steep, amphitheater-like hillside right on the edge of the Pacific. An abundance of strikingly memorable locations are found closeby.

Oceanside has clear ocean views, peaceful cafés, and a beautiful beach. It’s everything you’d expect and more from a place with a name like Oceanside. The famous Three Arch Rocks off the shore are a national wildlife refuge, visible from most places in town. A protected sanctuary for a wide variety of seabirds and other wildlife, the imposing profile of these arched rocks is a stark reminder of the ocean’s power.

At the northernmost end of Oceanside beach is a tunnel through Maxwell Point, a large promontory that extends over the beach. During low tide, the tunnel provides access to Tunnel Beach on the other side. Voyaging further north during minus tides allows for passage around the ocean side of two more rocky points. This route leads to secret coves and secluded beaches. Just be sure to keep an eye on the tide.
