Beverly Beach is coastal community in Lincoln County. Back in the 1930s, a couple who owned property in Beverly Beach wanted to create a seaside community. They asked their young daughter what to name the village, and she decided on Beverly, after her favorite doll. Years later, the name still stands and its rugged beauty is unparalleled. Whether you are just visiting or live here year round, you’ll enjoy stunning ocean vistas and relaxing sandy beaches. Beverly Beach may not have its own veterinary clinic, but never fear, canine care is only 15 minutes away in Newport.
It’s easy to see why the Beverly Beach State Park is the community’s most pupular attraction. With expansive beaches and gorgeous views, you simply can’t go wrong. Your pup will have a heyday roaming around this coastal gem. He can chase the waves or help you build a sandcastle. He’ll love helping you check for sea life in the tidepools, or watching for migrating gray whales. If your pal is having too much fun and doesn’t want to go home, grab a campsite at the park’s beautiful campground. Set up your tent among the majestic Sitka spruce trees and stay a couple nights.
Your pup will go mutts over Beverly Beach!
This Otter Rock neighborhood is home to the Otter Rock Marine Garden. Leash up your pup and head five minutes north to this one mile stretch of beach for some prime sea life viewing. When the tide is out, walk around the beach and discover dozens of tidepools that are brimming with life. This is your dog’s chance to see starfish, crabs, octopus, sea urchins, and anemones in their natural habitat. Your pup can also sniff around the sandy areas in search of the perfect piece of driftwood, or wet his paws in the Pacific Ocean. No matter what he does, he’ll be happy just being by your side.
Want to see something pawsome? Check out the Devil’s Punchbowl State Natural Area. This natural wonder is less than 10 minutes away in Otter Rock. Powerful waves crash into a large naturally carved rock bowl creating a churning whirlpool. Your leashed four legged friend can get a great view of the Punchbowl from the top, just make sure she stays close. Once she’s seen the famous landmark, follow the trail down to the beach for some tidepooling. This is a great place for a sandy stroll with your pal. She can get some exercise while you watch the surfers and try to spot some gray whales.
If your pup is ready for a coastal adventure, head 10 minutes south to Newport and pay a visit to the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. This park is located on a headland that juts one mile into the ocean and was formed by lava millions of years ago. There’s plenty to see and do here. Take a stroll around the historic lighthouse, or follow Salal Hill Trail so your pup can enjoy breathtaking views of the area. Follow the stairs down to Cobble Beach and listen to the rocks tumbling around in the ocean waves, or visit Quarry Cove. The pawsome possibilities are endless!
Since dogs and parks are a match made in heaven, your canine companion will love this Newport neighborhood. It’s only 15 minutes from Beverly Beach and has several pawsome parks. Frank V. Wade Memorial Park features multiple ball fields and sport courts. But your pup will be more interested in the paved walkways that weave through the lawns and gardens. If your pooch is craving some beach time, stop by Don Davis Park and follow the cobblestone path down to the beach so she can have some fun in the sun. Big Creek, Literacy, and Coast Parks are also in the area. Sounds furrific!
Does your dog need to burn off some extra energy? Then it’s time for a trip to the Wilder Dog Park in Newport. Situated 20 minutes away inside Wilder Twin Park, this off leash area is the local canine gathering spot. Your pup can ditch her leash and run around with new furry playmates. Water is available, so be sure she takes a drink break. If she’d rather enjoy some time in nature, pop over to South Beach State Park for a walk through the sand dunes or a stroll along the beach. This park also has a pet friendly campground, so go ahead and stay a couple nights.
