Located on Oregon’s rugged south coast, Harris Beach offers a splendid seascape for sightseers, several trails, and miles of sandy beaches and rocky outcroppings to explore. From the day-use area, enjoy beachside picnicking with a picturesque view of the sea stacks dotting the ocean, including the largest island off the Oregon coast.
Bird Island (also called Goat Island) is a National Wildlife Sanctuary and breeding site for such rare birds as the tufted puffin. The island makes for amazing wildlife viewing from the park's many viewpoints. Watch gray whales on their winter and spring migrations, harbor seals, California sea lions, sea birds and the rich marine gardens.
