Aura of the Sea



The Oregon coastline is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and geographic diversity, making it one of the most picturesque shores in the country. The Samuel H. Boardman Scenic Corridor, located between Brookings and Gold Beach, boasts some of the coast’s most photogenic stretches. This area is famous for its remarkable sea stacks, natural arches, and rugged beaches that offer visitors a chance to see waterfalls cascading onto the beach, sea caves lined with anemones and starfish, and fewer crowds compared to other areas along the coast.

The appropriately named Secret Beach in the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor is a secluded location. Access to the beach requires a steep and rough trail down from the highway. To reach the northernmost part of the beach, visitors must scramble down some rocks next to a waterfall. On the other hand, the southern section of the beach can be explored during low tides when the chokepoint between two large rocks is open. At very low tides, visitors can explore the pools at the far south end of the beach.

Secret Beach is a pristine strip of fine-grained sand embraced by ocean-carved cliffs and guarded by a series of majestic sea stacks. These massive sea stacks protect the beach from strong waves and wind, creating an atmosphere of relative tranquility. Only a few people visit each year, and it can only be enjoyed during low tide.
