Beachcombing on the Oregon Coast with Grant McOmie

Trip Ideas > Grant’s Getaways Agate Hunting on the Oregon Coast > by Grant McOmie, February 8th, 2013.

Editors notes: Remember agates are still readily found along the Pacific Coast, primarily on the Central Oregon Coast from Florence to Otis. For those of you wanting a great place to stay for beach combing the Moolack Shores Resort over looks a great area known for fossils. For more on this story check out the photosFor ease of beach access if you are not staying at the resort, I would advise you to use the unpaved turnout (with a green sign stating road adopted by Hang-glider pilots and...) that is just ½ a mile south of the Beverly beach state park  (not the asphalt parking lots). Approaching from the south it would be 1½ miles north of milepost 136 which is north of NE 100th St.
