The views through the woods and of the beach were amazing! My Family and I had a great walk to the beach through a well-maintained trail (branching off into two other trails if you are so inclined), and a picturesque beach with low numbers of people.

We went here because a member of our party was in a wheelchair and the hike to see this was not too bad. The view from the cliff side is breathtaking. Those that went down to the beach had a great time.

Super easy hike through old growth forest with the beach as the conclusion. Absolutely stunning — a MUST DO if you're in the area!

My girlfriend and I were on a road trip along the Oregon coast and Short Sands came highly recommended by a friend who surfs regularly here.

After walking for about 5-10 min along a lush, magical PNW rainforest you’ll come out to a smooth-sand beach protected by cliffs on both sides. Lots of cool things to find in the tide pools, caves, and around the waterfalls.

Park along the 101 in a dedicated lot. The trail is very manageable with offshoots leading through old growth forest. About 1/2 mile to the beach. There are cliffs on both sides which funnel the beach in. Worthy of a movie location. Surfers hang out.

Take the hike and see part of the coast most people drive right on by. Rain or shine a great reward awaits.

This beach is so peaceful and quiet and a nice get-away from the busy beaches such as Seaside and Cannon. A nice although short-is walk but so green and beautiful! I loved the little hike you have to do in order to get to it- easy and great for kids!

Visiting Oregon for the first time, I took a one day tour of Oregon’s coast. In addition to Cannon Beach, one of the stops we made was Short Sands Beach. We walked through a forest area before we arrived at the beach. It was very windy that day! Our tour guide pointed out the surfer to us. So happy we stopped here!

Blown away by this place - went twice in two days for body boarding with my 10 year old son. Loved the 15 minute (easy) walk down through the forest and the reveal of the stunning beach at the end. Was pretty quiet on both days (Monday and Tuesday). Plenty of space for people to relax or play on beach and more than enough space in the sea for surfers and body boarders. Great waves too. Toilets and picnic benches (and even a BBQ grill) on hand too. Up there with the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever been to.

Great beach but it's extremely crowded on the weekend. It was like playing surf dodgeball when I was there. I will have to try again on a weekday. The surfing conditions weren't great when I was there but still some fun to have in the waves.
