There are of course a lot of things that can be done on any seaside, but the Oregon Coast and the town of Seaside are very special. Apart from
the usual things that you do on a seashore like flying kites, building sand castles, snorkeling, walking on the beach, and sunbathing, many of
the activities around Seaside are hidden attractions that many tourists fail to explore. You just cannot ignore, or get away from the crowds
that usually prevail upon the normal beaches in and around Oregon. If your planning is thorough, you should be able to enjoy the beauty of the
sand dollars in the last beach access before the river, about a quarter mile away. Here, the splendor is unspoiled by the crowds of people. You
can enjoy in peace the vast sand dollar beach rich reefs before you head to the "Gerhart" which is the southern access of the Necancium River
estuary. The next treasure of interest is Cannon Beach which can be reached by a mile long hike. The richness of the Cannon Beach is beyond any
explanation. The next item on your agenda is Manzanita with the mysterious Neahkahnie Mountains looming around it. There are a lot of "hidden"
spots in the Manzanita area that shouldn't be missed though they are quite slippery.
The other attractions near and south of Seaside Oregon that should be visited are as follows:
- The Rockaway Beach
- Three Capes Loop
- Bayesian Spit
- Cape Meares - this sports a lighthouse and the Octopus Tree which is candelabra shaped.
- Netarts - with its lazy and calm beaches.
- Pacific City and Neskowin area, with the "ghost forest" (remnants of a 2000-year-old forest that was hidden in the sand for millennia) and the unusual Proposal Rock, are places that would take you away from the world with their awesome beauty.
