We’ve been up and down both East and West coasts. I’d be hard pressed to say which is more beautiful… so I won’t, because I can’t. They are both stunning. I love the rock formations jutting out from the ocean, trees overhanging the black sand, and sunsets on the beach. It’s all pretty awesome.
Along the way there are quaint charming little towns, and different rock formations with individual names. There’s Haystack rock in Cannon Beach and Rockaway Beach, and a dozen others up and down the coast filled with State Parks and walking trails to fully enjoy it’s beauty.
Oregon does a great job sharing their beaches with the community and it’s visitors through lots of maps, brochures, hiking / biking trails, camping, and wildlife viewing areas. They invite visitors to share in it’s grandeur.
