General Information

Description - Clam diggers, this park is for you! Also known as a surfers paradise, if you're visiting prime Newport attractions like the Oregon Coast Aquarium and Hatfield Marine Science Center, you must stop in for a refreshing picnic at Agate Beach. A tunnel leads to the invigorating ocean beach and day-use area. If you walk through this tunnel, you might imagine Newport farmers many years ago leading cattle westward through this tunnel to the ocean salt.

Recreation - Agate Beach offers beach access and opportunities for picnicking, fishing, clam digging and surfing.

Climate - The climate in Oregon varies greatly by region. The coastal region and the regions west of the Cascade Range are generally temperate and wet. Temperatures in the western portion of the state rarely rise above 85 degrees F during the warmest months and rarely dip below freezing during the winter.

Location - Agate Beach is located on Oregon's Central Coast, off US 101, 1 mile north of Newport.
