Build a bonfire at the beach. If you stay there late, get amazing night time photos with clear skies. Duration: Evening.

Clear nights on the Oregon Coast can be hard to come by, and your best bet to grab night time photos of the coast is in the Summer.

This particular section of the coast is relatively quiet in the Summer time. You can park your car easily along the road that gives you access to the beach. This is a great destination to watch the sunset, and to continue gazing into the sky after it has slipped below the horizon

Walked 350 miles of the OCT this fall and got a chance to breath in a huge portion of Oregon's incredible coastline. I'm from Rockaway Beach NYC so it was only fitting that this would be my first stop on my journey. I loved every moment of it.
