Paradise Point, located in Port Orford, Oregon, is a lovely beach and park area with breathtaking views of the coast, including the offshore reef and Cape Blanco, as well as the lighthouse on the cape. The beach is particularly attractive to beachcombers who enjoy walking up and down the shore, looking for interesting specimens and sea life. A rather small park at only 12 acres, it attracts about 50,000 visitors per year, since its dedication as a recreation site in 1969. It is mostly known for its typical Pacific Northwest shore and its magnificent ocean views.
This calm and serene beach is not only free for visitors, it’s also very welcoming to pet parents. Dogs are happily invited, so long as they’re confined by the owner or on a leash at maximum six feet in length. Visitors must be prepared to pick up after their pets. Your dog must also be in your sight, with no obstructions, and if a park employee asks you to restrain them with a leash, compliance is required immediately; if your dog does not respond to voice commands in a timely manner, it is expected that you keep them on a leash at all times.
Dogs must likewise refrain from annoying other park visitors, wildlife or other domestic animals. Across all Oregon park and recreation areas, general quiet times are 10 p.m.–7 a.m. and it is requested that you keep your dog quiet during that time as well.
Certain areas along the Oregon shore are designated "Western Snowy Plover Areas: and, as signage will indicate, dogs must be kept outside of the wet sand spots adjacent to remarked dry sand spots.
When planning your trip to visit this beautiful and dog-friendly beach, be careful not to confuse Paradise Point State Recreation Site with Paradise Point State Park, in Washington.
