Agate Beach offers beach access and opportunities for picnicking, fishing, clam digging and surfing.
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.
Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park.
Location: Agate Beach is located on Oregon's Central Coast, off US 101, 1 mile north of Newport.
