With seven miles of uncrowded sandy beach to spread out on, Rockaway Beach offers a serene seashore experience for beachcombing, kite flying, family activities or just kicking back and admiring the sights and sounds of the surf. Offshore, scenic Twin Rocks can be seen. Rockaway Beach is a family friendly community with over 300 motel rooms and abundant beach home rentals. Nearby freshwater lakes offer fishing and paddling. Rockaway Beach is a stop on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad where visitors can tour the coast behind a classic steam locomotive, just like the old days when the "Daddy Train" plied this route. Ocean fishing charters are only five miles away in Garibaldi.
