If you’re looking for easy access to outdoor seating with a wonderful ocean view, Bob Creek Wayside is a good choice. Bob Creek meets the Pacific just below a low bluff at this scenic turnout. Unlike some of the other beach overlooks between Florence and Yachats, there are no fences between you and the ocean. Picnic, rest, enjoy the view and salty air…or all of the above!
Bob Creek Wayside is a Native American Archaeological Site of the Oregon Coast, containing a shell midden and a burial site. Please observe the posted Oregon State Park rules regarding materials collection in order to preserve Oregon history and avoid fines.
From any of the benches at this wayside you can witness waves crashing near the cliffs to the north. Closer by, beachcombers often collect driftwood and other beach specimens or peer into the tide pools nestled in the rocks. This is a great spot for healthy relaxation with the ocean for entertainment.
