Local Area Guide: Things to do / Activities / Attractions


Netarts is a small community situated at the mouth of the Netarts Bay, just south of Oceanside, along the Three Capes Scenic Route. This small community is off the beaten path and offers peace and quiet sought by vacationers who want a truly local experience. Visit the nearby Cape Lookout State Park for some great hiking opportunities and breathtaking views. Netarts Bay spans 7 miles from north to south and is separated from the ocean by Netarts Spit. Inside the bay at low tide, you can search for different varieties of clam, and a nearby marina offers boat and crab pot rentals.


Oceanside is a cozy little village located just South of Cape Meares, and North of Netarts. This community is built on the hillside which offers amazing ocean views and a feeling you just don`t get from other coastal communities. At the northern-most end of Oceanside beach is a tunnel through Maxwell Point. During low tides it provides access to Tunnel Beach on the other side. Around the next point at the north end of Tunnel Beach, is Agate Beach, which can only be reached by going around the point on a minus tide and lives up to its name as a great place to search for agates. There are 3 restaurants in Oceanside that offer delicious food and drinks: Roseanna`s Cafe, Blue Agate Cafe, and Brewin` in the Wind. Some great, rainy-day activities are nearby, such as wine tasting at the Blue Heron French Cheese Factory, cheese tasting and tours at the famous Tillamook Cheese Factory, and airplane buffs should not miss visiting the Tillamook Air Museum.
