There is a beach that many consider the most beautiful on the Central Oregon Coast. It is Ona Beach and is located about 10 miles south of Newport.
Yet another in a string of beautiful public parks, Ona beach has some surprises for the first time visitor. The parking area is located just off highway 101 below a residential area named Makai. The beach is usually deserted although the picnic area next to the parking lot is very popular.
A paved trail takes you along and eventually over Beaver Creek across an arched footbridge and out on to the white sand beach.
Beaver creek cuts the beach in half but also offers hours of fun for the little ones to play in the 6 inches of warm water well away from the pounding surf. This is the beach for sandcastles, clamming, and agate hunting. Campfires are legal and a sunset weenie roast can be the perfect end to a magical day at the Oregon Coast.
