My son's class spent the afternoon here after arriving in Newport on their spring trip. Some kids played frisbee while others explored the beach. A fun time was had by all.

I'm sorry, I do not know the official answer regarding dogs off leash, however, I suspect the review by Dolly209 is probably correct. Every time I have visited the Oregon coast I have seen dogs running free on the beach with... More
