3 Ways You Can Enjoy Your Trip to Arcadia Beach State Recreation Park



Arcadia Beach State Recreation Park is a gorgeous, mile-long beach between Humbug Point and Hug Point. It’s easily accessible from Highway 101 and is less crowded than popular spots like Haystack Rock. Arcadia has everything you expect from an Oregon beach: stunning rocks, shady groves, and breathtaking views of the ocean. Leave your shoes on the sand and search for seashells, walk along the shore, or play a game of football with the family.

Tip: Make sure you bring a jacket with you! Arcadia Beach can be windy.


Have a Picnic

Take advantage of the park’s gorgeous setting and have a picnic on the beach! Oregon grows some of the freshest products you’ll ever taste, and it would be a shame not to enjoy them. Before your trip to Arcadia Beach, stop at Fresh Foods on Hemlock Street and grab the provisions you need. From juicy fruits and tasty vegetables to homemade breads, meats, cheeses, and even Sleepy Monk Coffee, you’ll find the ingredients for the best picnic ever.

Tip: Collect some driftwood and build a fire for the ultimate beach bonfire experience! Be sure to pack some s’mores in advance.


Observe the Colorful Tidepools

Tidepools are natural attractions in Oregon, and you can find plenty of them at Arcadia Beach! Bring your camera and study anemones, bright starfish, purple sea orchids, and more. Consider arriving at low tide, when Lion Rock is more accessible and you can get to the tide pools more easily.
