We decided to check out Short Sand Beach on our way to Manzanita, and we're so glad we did!
Short Sand Beach is a secluded little beach a short half mile hike from Highway 101.
Short Sand Creek empties into the ocean here.
And the waves beckon surfers for a ride.
I enjoyed this spot quite a bit! I just sat down on a piece of driftwood and watched the kids play in the sand, creek, and ocean. Very peaceful on a weekday!
What to bring: sand toys, bathing suit, towels, surfboards
