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.

Agates are really showing up!

Bonnie's booty for the day
Nice collection there girl friend. Local resident beachcombers Bonnie and her husband each came home with about 6 pounds of agates to fill their tumblers.
