Secret Beach Near Arch Cape Tunnel - Video of Falcon Cove Road Magic Rocks, Storm
Rockaway Beach, Manzanita, Wheeler, Nehalem Bay Virtual Tour, Oregon Coast
Just a wee bit south of the Arch Cape Tunnel, look for a hard-to-see road sign declaring Falcon Cove Road. It's perhaps one of the most hidden spots on Oregon’s entire coast, with very few knowing of its existence. Be cautious and polite when parking here, however, as it's someone's quiet neighborhood.
It's nicknamed "Magic Rocks Beach" because the larger chunk of this beach is covered in smooth, rounded cobblestones. When the tide is high enough to hit them, they make a strange rattling noise as the water recedes.
This section is difficult to walk on, and even open-toed footwear is not recommended, as it's easy to injure a toe on these somewhat slippery stones.
Depending on tide conditions, there’s sometimes (but not always) a decent amount of a sandy stretch at the tideline, allowing you to walk north towards the cliffs and mysterious cove areas bordering Arch Cape.
Note: be EXTREMELY cautious here and stay away from the beach in higher tide events. A family died here in 2020. Astounding Video of Massive Waves; Child Missing in Surf on Oregon Coast Saturday's storm action produced some astounding video and images, but it also proved deadly for one family
