Short Sand Beach (Oswald West State Park)

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
