Rockaway Beach Reviews (5455)5455 reviews
Rockaway Beach overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 1700 5455
Aubrey C.The home itself was my favorite, but seaside is great and close
Jeffrey P.Cape Meares in nearby Oceanside is a great place to see, among numerous others up and down the coast.
Rikki M.Right in Rockaway Beach we were served a VERY good espresso at R&R Espresso; and ate delicious pastries at Beach Bakeshop! In Garibaldi we took the dinner train and had a wonderful experience - I highly recommend it if it's available and you have the time/$$.
Rebekah W.Check out Hug Point if you can, not a far drive from the house and one of the most beautiful places I've seen.
Diane L.The place is very quiet and relaxing. Can't beat the rate for an ocean front stay.
Raymond D.Newhalem bay winery is always great combined with Debbie D's meats and Tillamook cheese.. what more do you need... :O)
Carly N.Old Oregon Smokehouse has delicious food.
James C.We had fun visiting the Wheeler bakery and antique stores, the bakery in Garibaldi, Tillamook Cheese Factory, Debbie D's and Blue Heron in Tillamook, and the Nehalem Bay Winery. And the Big Wave in Manzanita had great food for all.
Jody C.The Old Oregon Smokehouse, yes we understand it's not much to look at but the quality and value of the food can't be beat. Such a bargain for a crab cocktail, yes it's expensive however you get a ton of crab for the price.
Nick D.Offshore grill for breakfast, and the beach! Dos Rocas Mexican Restaurant, our server Wagner, was great!
Carrie P.Blue Heron, the playground in town, seafood at the dock in Garibaldi and ice cream.
Jenni J.Twin Rocks is beautiful and we enjoyed the local bakeries in the morning. Also, "downtown" rockaway was just a quick walk outside the door so that was great.
Caesar M.Flamingo Jim
Jay K.Absolutely! Kids love to explore this beach!
Lauren B.We went to the winery that was about 15 minutes away- it was wonderful! The workers were so nice and the wine was wonderful!

Tim P.Walking on the beach.
Wellington R.Manzanita, tillamook cheese factory, and the state park peninsula.

Brian K.View from Condo was terrific!!
Roberta A.Good local pizza and Mexican place.
Derica P.Flamingo Jim's is a great place for souvenirs and they are extremely helpful! They even mailed a necklace to us after we left. The SandDollar Restaurant has amazing food and is close enough to walk. Loved being so close to the beach!!
Mackenzie O.After our day at the beach, we had a great time picking up souvenirs at Flamingo Jims- which is an experience in and of itself! Very fun and unique shop, that goes beyond just a run-of-the-mill gift store. Also, they allow small dogs inside the store, if they are held (an obvious bonus for pet owners)!
Carie S.Since we visited during Christmas, a lot of places were closed. But we didn't feel like we ever needed to leave for anything.
Suzanne M.Sand Dollar Cafe was great!
Nicholas & Kimberly J.We tried a couple of the local restaurants which were both fabulous in price and above all taste in food, we also stopped by a couple shops and were pleasantly surprised that is consisted of wonderful items not just the normal coastal "Junk" made in china.
Marisa B.Like that it's closer to some more populated towns but isn't one on its own.
Michelle R.Old Smokehouse
Robin B.Pirates Cove restaurant
Peter M.cheese factory beach , rock faces and formations!

Tammi K.Loved the little thrift shop in Rockaway. The Beach Bite restaurant had great food!!
Gary D.Grumpy's is the place for breakfast!!!
Steven S.Local food and shopping is great. Look ahead of time for places to eat as they are not all open late night.
Kirstin A.The old growth cedar forest in Rockaway, the easy walk to the beach, and the beautiful drive north to Canon Beach.
Mark A.We enjoyed being in between the tourist towns of Tillamook and Seaside.
Ruth M.Trash and Treasures was a cute little shop with the SWEETEST people ever running it. It was a Tuesday in the off season so it's a much quieter town than it is in the Summer. They were not expecting a group of 30 something year old women to walk in that day. They were delighted and incredibly kind! The store has a lot of neat little treasure and knickknacks. Nehalem Bay Winery is just about 15 minutes away and we enjoyed every minute of our wine with the man working the tasting room that day. I think we all left with a bottle or two. We also hiked Cape Falcon which was incredible and not too far from Rockaway.
Steven B.Besides walking on the beach right outside the condo, we also enjoyed walking at Oswald West State Park, which is a short drive from the condo.
Daniel L.Very central to nearby Tillamook where you can enjoy a self guided tour of the factory, and of course get some of their freshly made ice cream. Additionally, for all the flight enthuisiasts as well as other fascinated by aircraft, do check out the Air Museum in Tillamook as well; very neat place.
Joan F.the beach!
Adam L.Tillamook Cheese Factory, Bay City Oyster Company, THE BEACH!

Kimberlee M.Very close to the beach and walking distance to little market.
Tammara K.Beach Bakery has amazing pastries and soups.
Eileen P.We enjoyed dinner at Pirate's Cove.
Joy C.We always go to Tillamook for cheese samples and ice cream otherwise we just enjoyed grilling on the deck, working puzzles and playing games together.
Samuel L.Rockaway leaves a bit to be desired with, for example no acceptable grocery store (bring groceries with you)!
Lisa A.We always visit Flamingo Jims (souvenir shop) in Rockaway!
The local bakery/sandwich shop is great as well!
If you visit Tillamook, The Blue Herron French Cheese Company is a must! It is just past the Tillamook Cheese Factory. They have a wonderful deli, a great selection of gourmet foods and plenty of samples, great gifts too!
You can feed the animals there too.....great for the kids!
Just up the road from the condo, is the Newhalem Crab Jetty /boat rentals.
Where you can get fresh crab, clams & oysters, they boil them for you.
The best part of Rockaway, is the condo right on the beach. Unit #205 was spectacular! Modern, clean, spacious and comfortable. We could not have asked for a better ocean view! This was our second trip there. Our family & dog LOVE it!

Karen M.The beach is absolutely beautiful with so much beach to walk and enjoy. The town is nice as well, but really the main reason we were there was for the beach.

Caroline S.Beautiful, quiet town area with a great beach that is close to other places along the coast. The house is only 3 small blocks from the beach. The house is in a safe area surrounded by mountains and beauty. The beach was lovely and we enjoyed watching the family of seals in the area near the jetty each morning and evening. We collected sand dollars on the beach. We loved the clouds, rain, fog and mist that enveloped the mountains during the fall.
Emily B.Buttercup in Nahalem. Has the absolute best homehand icecream and chowder. So worth visiting, and don't forget the vintage store next door. It's not over priced like all the other shops on the coast. You can still find a bargain.
At Pacific oyster in Garibaldi I had the best whole crab of my life. And I grew up in Alaska. So fresh, so delicious. They sale it at Markey price.
Kim C.Great location. Easy drive to Tillimook to the south and Cannon Beach and Seaside to the north. Wheeler has great antique stores just up the road a few miles.

Clay G.The local beach was great. Saw about 50 deer during our week stay, just outside the house
Tyanna H.We didn't explore the town, but the beach itself was wonderful.
Tracey S.The impromptu mini golf beside the rock shop was a great find. Even my adult kids laughed and played lime 2 year olds. The beach is super dog friendly, and don't miss the biolumines on the shoreline at night..
Denise M.Offshore Grill and Espeesso, Sleepy Monk coffee and great breakfaast.
Tara F.I had expected it to be a little closer to the ocean than it was, but it was a cute little cottage next to a lovely little green way which gave us a sense of privacy and some nice bird watching while eating at the table. I imagine the still-short distance to the beach would've felt closer had we visited during dry weather.
Chris S.Train excusion
Kara O.The Pirates Cove restaurant in Garibaldi was amazing! Beautiful views and great food and service! The Fish Peddlar was a great lunchtime treat too, eat your just caught seafood while you watch the connected factory workers shuck the oysters!
Paige R.The beach , ricks roadhouse excellent food great atmosphere
Lu P.We loved going to Grumpy's across the street for breakfast. Good food, but be prepared to wait. We were bummed out that we missed the train ride in Gerabaldi--it only runs during the weekend after Labor Day. But the train station was fun to explore. Neat old-school trains.

Heidi S.If you are looking for natural foods or a pet shop just a short drive to Manzanita.
Cathy S.Loved the Marina not far from the condo. We got fresh crab to go. Cooked while we waited, hot and ready. Can't get any fresher.
Wheeler was awesome if you like antiques. All the surrounding towns are wonderful. We took a longer drive to Depot Bay. Whales were in the harbor all day, had lunch and made a day of it. Schooners Cove for lunch in Netarts was a true highlight. Farm to table fresh. Try their garden salad it is like a work of art and so delicious i had to go back again. So good!!!!!!
Christina And Loren K.It's right in the middle of a lot of fun! We went to Tillamook, drove (and hiked partly) around the Cape Meares loop, hiked near Neakhanie Mountain, and simply hung out and had a couple beach fires at Rockaway! The train looked like fun, but we didn't get a chance to do that unfortunately.
Liston W.Sand Dollar was nice
Should mention that straight ahead view is of Duples @ 295
Julie H.Beautiful home right on water expansive views close to all the sights. Great for a family, only regret is that we weren't able to bring our dog, she would have loved to run on this gorgeous beach. We plan to return to this home and often! Many thanks.
Neta C.Easy beach access and even a doable walk to the tiny grocery.
Robert D.Always a nice beach and close to grocery shopping in Tillamook. Flamingo Jims is a fun place for niknacks and kites.
Harsh C.The porch outside is amazing -
Natalie E.The town was a little too quiet for our liking. Most shops weren't open during the week and the grocer in town was more of a convenience store. Up the coast in Nehalem there are some great options, and even further into Manzanita for food and shopping needs.
I do love that the rental is right on the beach and you could walk out.
Macy G.The rock garden in town was cute. The kids loved it.
David S.The beach access was outstanding.

Janet R.crabbing at the jetty was excellent.
Jill B.Rail Riding was a great fun family adventure and we also really enjoyed the Oregon Coast Railroad (enough to buy an annual family membership).

We were thankful for Center Market which had a good variety of basic supplies/groceries at reasonable prices.
Robin D.The beach is right next to the ocean! It is so convenient!
Shauna U.Kelly's marina for fresh crab was a fun experience!!

Christopher M.Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad
Sand Dollar restaurant
DeAnna L.Flamingo Jim's is a wonderful, nostalgic place to get seashellsome, taffy & quirky souvenirs. I've gone there since I was a child. It certainly brought back good memories.

Chelsea H.We loved being close enough to visit things like the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Cannon Beach, or Seaside - we just needed more time! :)

Dennis F.Smokehouse was a frequent stop. Great fish & chips. If you want groceries or seafood to grill you will need to purchase it in Garibaldi or Tillamook.
Andrea G.Sand Dollar Restaurant
Jennifer L.In Rockaway - The Sand Dollar - lovely deck, good drinks, nice folks! The patio at Ghost Hole Tavern in Garibaldi; San Dune Pub in Manzanita; Rising Star Cafe in Wheeler.
Rashmika E.We loved how close of a walk it was to downtown and we especially lived visiting the farmers market!

Tina D.Kelly's for crabbing
Amber F.The beach access was amazing! The beach is literally your front yard.

Jana S.Sand Dollar restaurant, the beach across the street, glass blowers, and the Blackberries everywhere!
Edward M.The beach
Kimberly S.We ate one meal at Beach Bite, wasn't bad at all for small place - was 2 restaurants in one, Mexican and seafood - 2 menu's (really bizarre, but it worked) - service was a little slow, but I really enjoyed my Albacore fish tacos (and I'm a fish taco snob, lol) - everyone else enjoyed their meal too. The gentleman who served us (may have been the owner??) was super nice!
Jennifer W.The Beach Bite. It is a ten minute stroll from the house and was among the best pizza we have ever had. Great variety of menu items too.
Shannon T.We drove up to Warrenton to Highlife Adventures zip lines and had a ball. Their staff was great and we had fun. Also took in Tillamook Cheese factory fun and tasty.
Greg M.Sand Dollar Restaurant was a great find, food and view were fantastic. Tillamook Country Smoker store was a must.
Mark B.The location and view was spectacular!
Debra C.Spent time on the beach, at the pizza restaurant. The bakery was good. Adequate grocery store.
Julia F.The Jetty Fishery was a delightful step back in time and the fresh crab we got was wonderful.

Sandy L.Cannon Beach and Seaside were the kids favorite spots. Mom and Dad enjoyed visiting the breweries in Astoria.

ROBIN A.The beach is nice and very dog friendly.
Kim K.Blue Heron wine tasting
Elizabeth C.The fact that the property is just a short walk away from the beach makes the whole experience 10x better.
Kathleen L.We loved the isolation of rockaway beach. It was an easy 40 minute drive to the much busier cannon beach if we wanted to do that, but we loved the empty beaches and feeling of relaxation.
Jennifer M.Oregon Smokehouse for fish! The people are SUPER friendly and they run out of the BEST crab cakes so get in there early for dinner!
Lori K.We found our new favorite beach on the Oregon coast, the one that was right in front of the house. The crabbing in Garibaldi was fun and thumbs up for the Deviener Vendor in Rockaway along with the Pelican Brewery in Cannon Beach.
Denise R.Old oregon smokehouse awesome halibut
Kathleen H.We love this location. Easy walking to local shops and restaurants and the most fabulous beach - easy access too!
Harry C.Love this location high on a hill. The view is magnificent and the house is built to take advantage of it from nearly every room. One doesn't really need anything else but the town at the base of the hill has everything you would need.
JOHN M.Kelly's (Brighton) Fishery for crabbing
Tillamook cheese factory
Jennifer A.The kids' mini golf spot at Troxel's Rock Garden on the main street.

Louis Z.You HAVE to go to Kelly's Marina a few minutes north on 101 and fish for Dungeness crab!
Sarah L.Pronto pup
Beverly S.The view
Holly T.Rockaway is mellow, and that is good in so many ways. We did drive just over to Manzanita for a nicer dinner out, but that was a good thing as it was sure more touristy there.
Danielle H.Troxell's Rocks and putt putt golf and the Ocean is great at Rockaway. Twin Rocks sunsets are the best! Pronto Pup was a great place for lunch!
Michelle M.Great access to the beach
Virginia G.Left Rockaway each day to visit other beaches

The Tillamook Cheese factory was fun - about 20 minutes away!
Not much option for groceries in town - we did our shopping at the Fred Meyer in Tillamook.
Ashley B.Sea Breeze Gifts & Ice Cream will be a favorite spot of ours!! A little shop, ran by the cutest couple!!! Their ice cream was amazingly good and portions were huge!!!!
Stacey B.Cannon Beach is one of our favorite areas. If you venture up north, be sure to hike to Crescent Beach from Ecola State Park. Oswald West State Park is also beautiful. We also loved Hug Point. Be sure to visit the little White Church Shop in Rockaway. You really can't go wrong on the coast. It's all so lovely!

Marietta H.Beautiful secluded spot with a short walk to beach.
Cheri L.Sand Dollar Restaurant was our favorite. Food, service and view were excellent!

Maureen Z.Drive a few miles north to Nehalem Bay when you need a break from Rockaway.
David L.If you like to have bonfires - there is NO driftwood at this beach. Go a mile south or 3 miles north, and its covered with firewood. Kinda disappointing as the kids love a fire to make smores. Buying firewood sucks....
Mona M.We really had fun on the train ride
Julie P.We enjoyed being able to drive north to Wheeler for a day and south to Garibaldi for a day. Rockaway has a great location along the coast.
Peggy B.We loved the whole experience.

Taking the rail from Rockaway to Garibaldi.
Sarah W.Fresh crab from Jetty Fisheries, beach day at Oswold West State Park.

Glenn M.The Jetty fishery was a great place for crab just N of Rockaway.
Jamie M.I had never heard of Rockaway Beach before but I am so glad we stayed here! It is a small quiet town with a beautiful beach!

Sharon W.The Sand Dollar restaurant was AMAZING!!! Incredible food! DO NOT eat at Grumpy's cafe! Worst food and service in Rockaway!

Kirstin B.The beach was amazing and the access to the beach is great. We went to High Life Adventures zipline on our way home and loved it.
Scott K.The Sand Dollar cafe serves the best food in town, sadly no really good breakfast places in town. The Jetty , just North of town is your best bet for the freshest seafood. Live crab, clams and oysters cooked to order to eat there or take back for dinner in your room.
Debbie H.2 hour train ride was awesome for all ages. Be sure to take the morning ride, so you can have lunch at the middle point in town and catch the last train of the day to get back to the starting point.
Excellent smoked salmon at Old Smokehouse in Rockaway. Best taste and price at the beach.
Anthony R.Cape Falcon Trail

Janet B.Astoria. Meuseum
Julie C.We loved the train that goes from Garibaldi to Rockaway. Was a lovely ride on an old Steam Engine.
Bruce L.Grumpy's Café has the best breakfast and cinnamon rolls.
George B.We found out very quickly that nearby parks north and south of Rockaway Beach fill up quickly and after 11:00am-Noon the lines to get into the parks can be lengthy... with a lack of parking once you get in. The early bird catches the parking space. This is a tourist/vacation area, so not a huge surprise.
Molly & Olivia T.Grumpy's

Cristina G.Beach Bakery folks were super nice. Julie and her husband were very accommodating.
Amanda B.If you need to grocery shop stop in Tillamook first theres only two convince stores in town super spendy
DAVID E.Not a swimming friendly beach, too close to noisy Hwy 101, view of a 70's
motel roof and big rusted out motel sign and other fairly run down buildings.
Could see the beach a little bit, but mostly watched morbidly obese motel clerks
come outside a smoke their cigarettes every hour.
Diana C.The beach, the firepit, and the loft
Brett F.We loved the steam train. The bakery just across from the steam train was great. Beach in walking distance.

Two days in a row we stopped at the Peddler (Fish Peddler?) and brought home fresh shellfish to cook up for dinner. No restaurant has a better view than the spectacular view from our condo, so we stayed in to eat.
Dana W.Lincoln City, Depoe Bay for whale watching

Nichelle H.Great Charter fishing out of Garibaldi. (Garibaldi Charters). About 15 minutes South of Rockaway.
Love walking the beach in Rockaway. The beach is just steps away from the back door. Bring a kite for windy days.
Cute shops to visit just a mile down the road. Nice places to eat.
Grocery stores in Rockaway are very expensive though, you can save a lot of money if you drive South to TIllamook and shop for groceries there.
Tillamook Cheese factory is fun to visit too.

Ryan M.We have always loved Rockaway Beach. The Nedonna Beach area is great for the driftwood and tidepools on the jetty. Rockaway Beach is laid back and has all the essentials that you need. Tillamook Cheese Factory is always our favorite, especially for the ice cream. Neahkahnie Mountain is a great hike (and the cliffs below).
Peter C.The Old Smoke House was excellent.Location to Beach and restaurants are close by, You will fall in Love with Rockaway Beach.
Fred P.I loved the downtown area and shops there, a lot of cool little places and even the the old railroad train that came through was nice to see.
Cheri T.Great beach great food fun train ride- The local were very nice!
Tabitha P.We loved the Old Oregon Smokehouse for fish n chips. It's a hole in the wall, but super fresh food! We also found an amazing spot for tide pooling- just north of Garibaldi, by the 3 Graces. Make sure you go at low tide-
Also, make note that many of the Rockaway restaurants and shops are closed Tuesdays. We headed to Tillamook and found plenty to do. Several places only take cash.
Kaitlin R.We had breakfast at Wandas in Nehelm and it was delicious! Also really enjoyed the Tillamook Cheese Factory!

Lisa O.We loved Manzanita and Cannon Beach
Missy R.We love Rockaway beach with our young kids. Its quaint and never over crowded. The beach at the house was AMAZING. The trail was fun for our kids and being so close to Twin Rocks was so fun. Our beach had very few people even though it was the middle of summer. THAT was worth it.
Josh W.Rockaway is a great little coastal town we've enjoyed visiting for years. Don't forget to check out Pronto Pup!
Drew W.There are certainly spots on the main drag that are sketchy
Joyce C.The house is in a good location. Would like to have had TV.
Bobbie P.We found this a central location for day trips to Oceanside and Tillamook.
Mari H.It was beautiful to walk along this scenic, beautiful, uncrowded, magical coastline. I suggest walking to the end of the beach, toward the Cannon Beach side to the rock jetty. Also having a beach fire at night, was amazing.

The beach was beautiful and the location is great, situated between Tillamook and Cannon Beach.
Rochelle W.There was a rocky beach a short distance away where the kids found star fish, crabs and clams. The jacuzzi was very nice.
Vivian L.The beach was great, so close to the house. Since we were there over July 4th, We didn't realize how close the fireworks were. The deck gave us the perfect view. Be warned that the fireworks and train can be really loud if you have young children who still nap.
Theresa S.Take a day just to drive up the coast and stop at the many places along Pacific Coast Hwy 101. The Tillamook Forest Center was fantastic and check out Lattes & Lures near there for a delicious treat after. The train ride along the coast was fun but you have make a reservation for the dinner option a week in advance. Youngs River Falls near Astoria was a great stop - the waterfall was breathtaking (we would have preferred Munson Creek Falls but reviews told us trail closed half way to to when we were there)
Ryan F.Just north of Garibaldi we found a little place where we picked fresh blueberries. (Miami River Inn). We drove up to the Oregon Film Museum in Astoria. Try the pesto and garlic breadsticks from upper crust pizza. They were great

Debra G.4th of July events were great - parade, wiener races and fireworks were visible in both directions. Fresh fish from dock at Garibaldi was fun advice we received from the market folks. Offshore Grill and D'Viener Vendor were yummy - especially banana bread French toast. We found Kelly's Marina in Brighton and Tsunami grill in Wheeler were relaxing places to hang out for a meal on the water.
Gaylynn S.Absolutely beautiful view and great location. the restaurant next door is a little noisy at night but I will defiantly go back.
Richard K.Great spot for boogie boarding.
Todd And Suzy K.The beach was lots of fun and very close to the cottage. The train was a unique thing, too. It only ran 3-4 times each day and never at times when we were sleeping.
Tracy H.Rockaway is perfect to go north or south for sight seeing or just stay put, train ride, bicycle rentals, little restaurants, antiquing, little shops , beach combing, Twin Rocks . . .
Grace G.Apparently the smoke house is number 4 in the nation! We didn't get a chance to go so we can't give a personal recommendation. We did do the train ride which was really nice.

Ramona J.We stayed in our own spot because the beach and our location was perfect.
Janice M.we loved our hike at Cape Lookout and Tillamook tour the best.
Donald D.Short Sands beach in Oswald State Park, though it's a bit of a trek to get there. It was fun just to walk around and go to the shops nearby. Tillamook Cheese Factory was fun. Try the grilled cheese sandwich!
Dale M.Oswald West State Park & Short Sands Beach. Kell's Marina and Clams. Tillamook dairy products.
Paul T.The beach area is very user friendly and the access was good from the condo.
Somsak P.The beach was an actually sandy beach and literally a stone's throw away. We were able to see the amateur fireworks show from our deck, but not the official city one.
Narda R.4th of july with parade, beachtime, family barbecue, bonfire on the beach and fireworks makes for best day ever!
Carla R.Great fireworks on 4th. Fun to wander around downtown and over to the wayside. Enjoyed the bakery and coffee shop

Chris & Amber D.The view from the unit is spectacular! The beach itself was awesome! Soft and clean sand. Nice kitchen and fixtures. Plenty of room!
Sandi T.The beach is the best attraction! We drove up to Seaside once, and got groceries in Tillamook once, but we're really just there for the beach!
David P.Enjoyed antiquing in Wheeler & fresh fish at Pirate's Cove. Recommend hike/picnic at Oswald West park.
Sheila L.We were there during Pirates weekend so it was fun for the kids and all of the vendors were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. We went into Tillamook and did the tourist things like the cheese factory and the Blue Heron the kids ages 2-8-10-12 all had fun and gained a new perspective about cheese. The ability to have a bonfire and smores on the beach was the highlight of the trip.

Nicole R.Flamingo Jims, Grumpy Cafe
Roxanna H.Manhattan beach - Proposal Rock - Short Sands - ahawww heck they are all great !

Anna Liza L.The beach itself is gorgeous and on top of it you want to go crabbing its just nearby.
Ann A.Loved the kite flying.
Adam L.It was the "pirate festival" in Rockaway Beach. The kids loved it!
Melody H.We ate at 2 restaurants in town. The sand dollar- staff were nice, food was bland and expensive, view of ocean from where we sat was really nice, overall we didn't care to return. Grumpys- we left before our waiter even came to our table. A couple dining across from us wispered "good decision" as they saw us get up to leave and we shared an awkward giggle. None of the staff seemed to know what they were doing and the aforementioned couple tried to make a request to their waitress and she treated them like idiots. Wouldn't recommend. We also grabbed some ice cream from a shop on the main street. The ice cream was good, the service was super awkward and the woman and (I'm assuming) her son who served us had no desire to make the customers feel welcomed. We felt like we were burdening them. HOWEVER just outside Rockaway Beach, in Gribaldi, there's a new restaurant (they had been open 6 days when we ate there) that was perfect. I don't know the name and they were so new they didn't have a sign yet, but was next to the motel there on the main street, we had burgers, blt, fries, all of it was wonderful. Staff was amazing, we went back the last day and ate again, same great experience.
Virginia V.The Sand Dollar Restaurant. It was excellent. I had the fresh oysters three ways YUMMY and the Sea Scallops. My husband said the Martini was one of the best he has ever had.
Rick O.Such a beautiful area - lots of walking available. Lots of great food. Pirates Cove and Offshore Grill stand out as two of our favorites.
Harriette B.The Little White Church Antiques, The Little Crow,Beach Crafters Mall, Flamingo Jims were all great. Small shops are the best. All so charming and owners so friendly and helpful.
Eva O.The people at the Bay Bait shop were the friendliest most helpful people.
Myka S.The beach in Rockaway was very nice.
SANDRA C.The beach access is perfect
Andy C.Take the short drive to Hug Point. There're barnacle covered caves to explore and tide pools teeming with sea anemone! The Dunes at Nehalem Bay State Park were neat, too. Windy, though!

Wan H.Old Oregon Smokehouse is so good! We had the best clam strips there!
Debra C.Loved the home . We were able to walk down a path onto the beach. It would have been hard though for elderly and very small children . We went on the scenic railroad out of Bay City and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings.
Katrina M.Sand Dollar restaurant does not allow service dogs. All other restaurants in Rockaway Beach were very accommodating! Scenic railroad train was fun, Girabaldi beach was fun!

Mark M.The beach was great. Soft clean sand and mild surf.
Roberta S.A great place to spend hours just walking the beach at any pace.
Anne S.Loved hearing coyotes after a siren went by.
Trudi H.Excellent. If you want to get picky, the heaters are on the floor and require the use of a remote. They are nice looking but I was not super savvy with them, that could just me. The radiant floor heating was great! The front door lets in cool air so I am little concerned about staying in the winter but it will probably be fine and would go back.

Jenny F.The Jetty Fishery, just a few minutes North of Rockaway Beach, was our go-to for fresh catch seafood. We always cook up fresh seafood when we stay at the beach. They had amazing oysters, clams and crab! Very very fresh and very good! We also spent the first morning at Jetty Fisher crabbing out in the bay on one of their boat rentals. We caught our own lunch for the day! Fabulous. The environment is very family oriented. Down to earth. It is a classic gem, felt like it was preserved in a time capsule of what family fun should be all about.
Rhonda S.Memorial weekend Kite Festival was amazing!
Melissa G.Cannon Beach was amazing and close. Great shops and restaurants.
Rockaway Beach was beautiful and peaceful. We liked it better than Cannon Beach (beach) because there were no crowds.

Joe G.The Barview Store (15530 N Hwy 101, Rockaway Beach, OR 97136) is a great little family-run general store just up the street where you can get fresh-caught oysters, deli food, coffee in the morning, and any little incidentals you might have forgotten to pack. Really friendly place.
Also check out the Offshore Grill & Coffee House (122 N Hwy 101, Rockaway Beach, OR 97136) for some great grub. Reasonably priced, really tasty, and very close to the rental.

Wonderful friendly people in the businesses and shops as well. A short drive to Manzanita's IGA was well worth the trip for the selection of gluten free organic options.

Ernie M.The surrounding area is breathtaking. Convienant location.
Kirstin T.We enjoyed exploring Short Sands Beach just North of Manzanita in Oswald West State Park as well as traveling south of tillamook to Munson Creek Falls.

Easy access to the beach, fun pirate ship play structure in the center of town, great little friendly shops, & great coffee shops, eateries, food carts, smoke house, & R & R coffee drive through. There is a old fashioned train that runs through town that is really a treat to see. We haven't taken a ride on it but that sounds like it would be fun & a beautiful viewing opportunity. For a fun crazy shopping experience you must go to Flamingo Jims.

Traci E.We found the perfect place to take our greyhounds where they could run without running away : Hug Point! They had a blast!
Nicole A.Rockaway is a very nice small little town not much to do with 4 small kids which forced us to drive to seaside and cannon beach. The short dive their was both beautiful and short.
Christy G.Rockaway is a nice clean beach to enjoy walking on. Manzanita is equally as nice. Cannon Beach is a bit dirty (from all the traffic and birds), but a site to see.

Ring of Fire Glassworks in Rockaway - we treated our granddaughter to a "make your own glass float - she's 5 years old - it was fun and she's very proud of her creation (not inexpensive" - $65. But it took 45 minutes, and we all enjoyed watching John, the owner, teach and assist her.

Daniel G.Great beach to stroll along
Jennifer B.Siggi G Charters
David K.Grumpy's CafÃ© has great food and is especially noted for big breakfasts. Visit the small shops; many are open in off season. We especially liked Flamingo Jims, the little antique store, and Troxel's rock garden. The beach access by the south jetty was fantastic, especially with all the drift wood along the beach from recent storms. Plus you are close to Garibaldi and Tillamook for other services and shopping.
Miriam B.With the beach just outside the door, you're able to visit the beach as much as you'd like. Warm up in front of the fireplace as you look out on the surf. Quick and scenic drives to the Tillamook Cheese Factory in one direction and Mo's Restaurant in the other direction. After meal walk to Hay Stack rock to look at the tide pools on low tide

Melinda C.The Upper Crust Pizza - Being GF, my diet needs are particular, and their GF Pizza was really good - though a mite pricey.
Marcia M.Dinner at the Silver Dollar was excellent!
Molli C.If coming through Tillamook on your way to Rockaway...must go to Blue Heron (and T-cheese Factory if you must/want).

Jennifer D.Downie's in Bay City is a great diner for breakfast and lunch. Kendra's in Tillamook is great for lunch and dinner. The beach in Oceanside is quite beautiful and the there are lots of shops and antique stores to the North (Wheeler, Nehalem, and Manzanita).

Steven M.RockAway beach was smaller than I remembered and quite a few of the shops were closed. We had to go to Tillamook or Cannon Beach for groceries, etc. I would have to say that it was quiet though.
Curtis M.The Pirates cove restaurant was good but a little expensive. Great views of the bay
Elizabeth H.Hug Point
Bree C.BINGO! The Lions do Bingo on Friday and Saturday night. It's just around the corner and cheap fun. Plus, I won $110 extra vacation money!
Randy & Roger B.Stay away from the local "new" bakery on the main street. It is extremely expensive. There is a sign on the counter indicating that if you are a residence of Rockaway you pay a different price than non-residents. We purchased 2 Americano coffees, 3 scones, and two Asiago Cheese dinner roles. $25.00.
Christine F.The Jetty Fishery. Our favorite spot for renting a boat and crabbing

Beth L.I hadn't been to Rockaway for years and was very pleased to be back. The beach is absolutely more beautiful than I remember and the property was really cute. There was a lot of decoration and ambiance that said "beach" and very nicely. I will come here again if I get the chance.
Nathan D.sand dollar was surprisingly good
Richard W.A short walk to the Twin Rocks beach location. Very easy beach access. House is roomy, comfortable and well equipped. Grandchildren loved the size of the third bedroom and the quick run to the beach.
Sherry C.From Rockaway we went South to Cape Mears lighthouse and of course the Tillamook Cheese factory. Seeing the oyster shucking at the Pacific Seafood Company in Bay City was interesting. Even when they aren't shucking the oysters, there is a looping video in the dining area showing how they are farmed and harvested. Don't miss the mountain of shells piled near the highway!
In Rockaway, I liked the "Rock Garden" ~ a funky little place full of interesting rocks that you can take as you want. They do ask for a donation but it's totally voluntary.
Brenda K.The beach access was perfect. The beach was awesome with all the drift wood and searching for seashells was huge bonus. The grand kids loved finding their treasures!
Amanda J.Manzanita. Quaint and easy to get to.
Selma D.It is in the quieter part of Rockaway Beach and we also saw deers!

Jean I.Our group went crabbing and we had a great crab feast.
Peggy L.The local sports pub was a great place to sit and relax. The staff were very friendly.
Rachel H.This home had great beach access. We walked the beach day and night.
Jeffrey G.The kids enjoyed the two cheese factories in Tillamook and the beach the most. They found agates, shells and had a great time building sand structures.
Steve L.The beach was just down the road and was great for beach combing! Everyone was very kind and it was fun to do a little shopping in Rockaway. My kids also loved the house! They spent hours playing air hockey, ping pong, and pool. The hot tub was a big plus also!
Daisy A.Train ride was fun for all.
Sand dollar restaurant was amazing!
Beach access was unreal.
Mary G.Felt like we had the beach to ourselves, quite and away from the crowd. Nice walk able distance to town.
Kathleen V.Manhattan beach, the beach here in rockaway, grumpy's cafe, upper crust pizza, the train ride to Garibaldi
Michael B.The beach is right outside your door. We flew kites, took lots of walks on the beach, and had fires in the evenings outside. We had a lot of fun going to crab, clam, and fish at Garibaldi too....
Tim B.Its pretty much exactly what the pictures show. We never went into the basement and only hung out on the main/top level.
Aaron M.Every beach, every little shop.
Jon T.Loved the proximity of this property. Within 30 minutes of Tillamook, Close to Jetty Fisheries for Live Seafood.
Jed H.We love heading to the beach of course, the train, salt water taffy, Cactus Jacks for fun items, crabbing at Nehalum and Tillimook is close by for a cheese fix.
David B.As always the beach is the biggest appeal.
Pat W.Grumpy's Cafe was a great option for breakfast or lunch.
Tudor D.Rick's Roadhouse bar hosts a mean karaoke night on Saturday! We had a blast!
Charlotte B.Crabbing at Kelly's Brighton Marina and taking a glass blowing lesson at Ring of Fire were super fun.
Marc M.Offshore Grill and coffee house was a highlight for the morning time! The People, service, Coffee and breakfast was great. Nice quiet beach for a peaceful vacation.
Cindy F.If you plan to cook your meals, bring your food from home. The market there is quite small with limited selection, and is more expensive. R & R Espresso has fantastic lattes and on the weekends, they have a delicious selection of breakfast pastries.
Jessica L.We were so close to the beach, it was great. The beach was not crowded either.
Erin T.The Offshore cafe for breakfast and the Sand Dollar restaurant for dinner were great!
Teresa W.Since this home allows dog, I would encourage you to at least put in a dog run - or better yet fence off a section of the land. Just a note...a boy of perhps 10yrs old was shooting his BB gun aiming a my small dog, he of course stopped when he saw me. Mobile with all the plants across the street/mowed field.
Bethany W.Awesome hike to Short Sand Beach. Beautiful beach worth a visit!
Linda T.Breakfast across the street at Offshore Grilling was good.

Shelley A.we loved the Silver Dollar restaurant as we could have the kids and dog with us on the patio, and watch the ocean while we had dinner. the few entres we had were great.
Tim C.We went to Pizza Garden in Nehalem for lunch on the river -very good. Went to Oceanside (35 minutes) for dinner at Roseanna's Cafe - fantastic! Best seafood we've had in a long time. The beach in front of Carshell's was wonderful - clean, convenient, not crowded and huge! Our one-year old grandson loved digging everywhere on the beach!
Michelle W.It was amazing but found Rockaway Beach a little more windy than other area beaches
Kristen V.Rising Star Cafe - great seafood in Wheeler
Greg P.It's amazing to have a beautiful beach just a few steps from the back door. Very neat as well being able to view the majestic 'Twin Rocks' right from the dining room. My wife and I find Rockaway to be in a great central location with Cannon Beach only a 30 min drive to the north and Tillamook only a few minutes to the south. The house is only a short walk also from the main Rockaway business strip. The Sand Dollar restaurant on the beach is a bit pricey but the clam chowder is very tasty.
Jean L.Because we had children, we enjoyed that the beach was in walking distance.
Jan J.We traveled several days...once to Astoria and also south to Newport for the aquarium. But most of the time we just went to the beach!! We parked on 3rd Street in the church parking lot and it is a SHORT walk to the water. Great place!! It was a little cool and windy a couple of the days we were there, but enjoyed it anyway.
Tracey B.Be sure to visit the lighthouse at Cape Meares! Hiking in Oswald West State Park is also a must. Lots of family friendly activities to do in the area, especially the Tillamook Cheese Factory :)
Kirsten M.Ecola Park
Sand dollar hunting
Tillamook cheese and ice cream
Kevin A.The beach is awesome, lots less people then the neighboring beaches. The tide pools are close by and great food in the area of Rockaway!

Marina W.Have a coffee on the stone bench overlooking the beach, it's stunning and a great way to start the day.
Yael L.Kelly's Marina

Scott C.Had a glass-blowing lesson across the highway and a little to the north - great experience - fun time.
Juniper R.Very close to the beach and shops! Just a short drive to Garibaldi for great crab fishing! Only 15 minute drive to the Tillamook cheese factory, definitely worth a trip just for the free samples! A little longer of a drive, about 40 minutes to visit Seaside.
Kimberly F.Loved how close to the beach this property is. It was also close to town which made it nice to get groceries and go out to eat.
Candice K.Ate at Pirates Cove, the food was excellent.
Jasper V.Steam train ride
Ludmila H.I would HIGHLY recommend Handy Creek Bakery, it's about a 10-12 minute drive north on HWY 101 in Wheeler. Best home-cooked style breakfast, tastes like delicious Grandma's cookin'.
Greg G.The Sand Dollar has surprisingly good food.
Megan M.Jim's store was a great place for kids to find souvenirs.
Erica H.The little crow gift shop is awesome. I got a few really nice things there including a neat table that was very reasonably priced!

Amy U.jetty fishery
Julie V.We loved everything about Oregon. This was our first trip and we had a blast! We were told about a local hike up to a beautiful tree spot that was easy for everyone to walk there. It was breath taking and a great way to finish off a day of shopping in Rockaway and dinner.
Stefan L.The OffShore Grill in Rockaway has great coffee and good breakfast! And the little store "Found" has some very neat and usual items.
Cherie T.It's a beautiful beach, in a beautiful area. We had the best time!! Loved every minute we were there.
Lynn C.The beach is just right around the corner so grab your toys, cooler & other beach items and enjoy!
Michael F.State parks were very beautiful and worth visiting
Connie B.The beach right in front of our place was beautiful. The sunsets in the evening were amazing. The only wish we had, was an easier access to the beach. The people next door let us use their path in the evening, so we did not have to navigate the rocks.
Tatiana J.Tsunami bar and grill in wheeler has amazing seafood. And ricks roadhouse for spectacular hospitality.
Kathy B.The proximity of the property to the beach was fantastic - a short pathway, and the sand is your playground!
Rebecca S.Great beach access
Heather G.Access to beach is great.

Katharine W.World's biggest Western Red Cedar is very nearby
Leah C.The Sand Dollar restaurant in town has fantastic food and great view of the beach on their outside patio.
Kristine B.When I booked this home I read about a stream in the back yard, The way I had it in my mind was a babbling stream with rocks. It was stagnet water with bushes so high and thick you could barely get back there to look.
Shekhar O.Definitely go closer to the Twin Rocks for a photo session: drive to NE (not NW) 7th Ave, turn right on it and park in the tight parking space close to beach access, and walk towards the beach for the closest view of the Twin Rocks. Also stroll leisurely in the market area, if you have time.
Colin M.Close beach access, nice restaurants nearby (we liked the Oregon Smokehouse), and a pirate-themed playground for kids within walking distance.
Christine O.Just loved the quick access to the beach... (and the nearby coffee shop provided quick and easy refreshment :).
Karly R.Boogie boarding on the beach out front!
Linda G.Loved Grumpy's Cafe
Susan S.Check out Offshore Grilling & Coffee House - good food - they should post their menu online!

Cheryl W.There was not too much going on down the main street.
Rita L.Cape Meare Lighthouse
Aline B.The beach is just in front of the Twin Rocks. Amazing!
Jessica C.Walking the beach! Best place to find sand dollars!!!
Stephen & Barbara B.The fireworks were the best we've ever seen.
Jenny E.The creek was fun for the kids and we enjoyed Sand Dollar and Beach Bite for dining.
Marisa M.Grumpys Cafe
Juliana M.The beach near the property is beautiful, but there is no official access. You have to go through the access of a property for sale or of a camper if it is unoccupied. It is also not in walking distance of the town of Rockaway Beach, but a short drive.
Debbie H.Had some good meals at the Sand Dollar and great beer tasting at De Garde, which is South of Tillamook.
Nicole G.Beautiful, quiet area of the beach. Many areas for playing in/on the beach and bonfires!
Debra H.Great beach 3 blocks down. Enjoyed the cedar wetlands walk in Rockaway.
Noel M.pacific oyster is a fabulous place to eat
Shelley G.The Sand Dollar, right next door for good food and drinks. Old Oregon Smokehouse - great! For coffee and breakfast, Offshore Grill.
Karen B.We loved the sea food at the Oregon City Smoke house. We had 4 meals from them. John at the Ring of Fire is quite the character. He was amazing with my 85 year old mother for the glassblowing.
Simon W.Beautiful home in an amazing location with a fabulous sheltered deck and back 'yard'/beach area, of course leading in a few short steps to Rockaway beach and ocean. Stunning.
Manzanita is a short drive north and cute, fun little town.
Whitney S.Nedonna Beach was mellow, uncrowded, and stunningly beautiful. Manzanita has a great grocery and coffee shop. Whatever one needs.
Micah S.Old Oregon Smoke House was a great place to grab some local fish and eat outside.
Karlee A.This cute cottage is a very quick and easy walk to the beach and is right across the street from some neat shops and a cool ( but loud ) tour train.
Debbie S.WE enjoyed everything about Rockaway
Donna S.Recommend Echola beach State Park and Induan Beach.
Ryan R.Loved having the beach almost to ourselves
Quana B.The beach is beautiful and very quiet. Very few people and the shoreline goes for miles.
Neil S.Grumpy's Cafe is a pretty good little breakfast place! Small, so I'm sure it's packed in the summer, but I went in April and the service was excellent, and the food portions were great.
Jeff S.Awesome views.
The furniture is nice and very comfortable. A warm and inviting decor.
Slept really sound, beds very comfortable and the sheets, so soft.
Dena R.Our only issue was all the pitch that got on our cars from the trees that hung above the driveway.
Jennifer W.Old Oregon Smoke House, Sand Dollar Cafe.
Sue S.Rocos & the Bite Restaurants. Flamingo Jims is always a tourist favorite.
Tenely S.4th of July on Rockaway Beach was an experience!
Also, bought great steamer clams and crab cakes at Old Oregon Smokehouse
Kerry O.Sand Dollar Restaurant is absolutely wonderful! The best view and great food with friendly service. 100% recommended.
Thomas L.Beach area was great
Kathleen B.Rockaway Beach doesn't have much in the way of restaurants. ..but I recommend, without reservation, nearby Kelly's Marina....rent your boat and baited crab pots, bring in the crab that you catch and they boil it on the spot. Nicest people! Also recommend the Tsunami Bar & Grill in nearby Wheeler (just 6 miles). Their seafood chowder is the best on the coast and the salmon fish &
chips is divine
M. Sami K.closeness to the beach and the view are awesome
Terence N.Awesome breach front location and we can hear the ocean. The building at the front blocks some views but we can see the Twin Rock and the sunset. I setup an action camera + tripod and did some time lapsed photography (10 sec intervals). Seeing the clouds moving in and out quickly is awesome. Rockaway Beach is an old town. Not such activities that bring excitments. Tillamook Cheese Factory Tour and the Rockaway Beach train are very good.
Scott B.Fire pit in the back yard was great as was the hot tub!
Grace C.Go check out the Little Crow in town. Wonderful gifts and treasures and the ladies that run it are awesome!
Gloria L.The beach was clean and fabulous in every way. The train ride was an event our grandchildren are still talking about.
Rhettleigh M.Beach was wonderful and not crowded. The town is a walkable distance.
Michelle P.The new Sand Dollar Restaurant was amazing! Great service, location, and delicious food. We went there multiple times during our trip.
Avoid the Dos Rocas Mexican Restaurant though - we waited over an hour for two meals, subpar food, received no apology, and then the waiter charged our card for the wrong amount after it all.
Doreen C.JUST THE WHOLE TRIP,THE HOUSE, AND THE LOCATION WAS BEAUTIFUL.
Holly D.We got some wonderful fresh salmon and oysters in Garibaldi fish market (the place with the big pile of oyster shells) and cooked them on the grill. There are lots of fun shops to visit in town-just a short walk along the beach. We happened to land during Pirate Festival which was fun for the children. We also rode the train to Garibaldi and back with my two grandsons and some local pirates and red coats-super cool. Nice easy access to the beach and long, long beach for walking, running and sand castles.
Emily B.Offshore grill and coffee house had awesome coffee!
Curtis S.The glassblower up the street has great classes.
Daniel F.Kelly's had a great breakfast
Jeffrey S.Drive up to Indian Beach and drive through Ecola State Park.

Dan V.Check out the Three Capes Scenic Drive
Darrell M.Grear fishing for surf Perch right there on the beach! Kite flying was also a blast as it was pretty windy!
Wallace Y.Clean sandy beaches at Rockaway, Garibalbi and Nehalem. Don't miss the Beach Train Ride.
Amber L.Tillamook is 12 miles south, it's a beautiful drive and we were able to pick up take and bake pizza from Papa Murphys. Seaside is about a 40-minute drive North we stopped at the Safeway there on our way down. There is a market across from the cottage as well as a really fun tourist beach store!
Nicki C.Rock a way was a nice little town. Loved having the quiet beach right out the front door. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Eva K.Loved walking on beach, watching waves from patio, beautiful view from living room/dining room through large expansive windows, view from master bedroom and fresh ocean breezes! Fabulous time!
Donna H.Of course Tillamock for ice cream. In Bay City the Oyster factory for lunch. The Lakeside Restaurant. Great clam chowder.
Suzanne F.Went to the sand castle contest in Cannon Beach.
Denise R.The park on beach road with all the driftwood and fishing with garbaldi charters !!!
Michael C.Cannon Beach was amazing.
Cori S.Pirate's cove had some awesome food- we've been there several times, but this was the best. the sand dollar had some really great beers.
John F.We enjoyed perusing the eclectic shops nearby and walking the entire length of the beach. The Twin Rocks is spectacular. We also had a nice visit into Gibraltar.

Rozalind R.Downtown was great and we found a great little beach in nearby Oswalt West National park
Reda C.Hug Point is a must see.
Wayne B.You could never leave the house and be completely satisfied.
Melody M.We loved the deep sea fishing out of Garibaldi. Just a short drive either direction on highway 101 for all kinds of great things to do.
Kellie R.Rockaway beach is a quaint little town that has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable.
Michelle P.Kelley's Marina--Crabbing and Clamming was amazing and such a fun group of people. Enjoyed Seaside, but prefer the quieter beach we had. Tillamook cheese factory and Cape (lighthouse and hikes).... Didn't have time for everything but loved where we were.
Lisa S.This house sits right on the beach, which allows for daily walks. Just a 15 minute drive to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Also would recommend stopping by the Tillamook Goodwill. Awesome selection of clothing, if you forgot something. I would also recommend stopping by Richard's in Rockaway. It's the shop with all the bright colored birdhouses. He has a very unique shop, hand crafted wood, glass and jewelry all created by Richard. Just not the honey, the local bees made that.
Ronda J.The burgers at the Sand Dollar Restaurant & Lounge were well worth the money and great view.
Kolynn W.The Sand Dollar restaurant and bar was our favorite hang our while a Rockaway Beach. We would enjoy a great burger and cocktails while we watched the sunset.
Sarah Q.Lake view restaurant was a nice place to grab dinner and white church antiques very cute shop
Anita H.Rockaway Beach Market has really good clam chowder. Old Oregon Smokehouse has delicious smoked oysters and popcorn shrimp (not mini shrimp either)
Alicia W.All the parks along the coast were beautiful and easy to get to.
Mary A.We really enjoyed the south jetty at Manhattan Beach. Also, in the neighborhood was a small pond that we were able to put our personal kayak in. These small coastal dune ponds/lakes have community boxes stocked with life jackets. There was a larger lake on the east side of 101 called Lake Lytle that was a good put in for the kayak.
Rhonda B.We loved Visiting Cape Meares, the Tillamook Cheese Factory, Cannon Beach, and Hug Point. Rockaway Beach is in a great central location.
Sharon S.The caramel corn is the best on the coast!
Mark R.The beach

Christine E.We ate at The Sand Dollar. Delicious !
Ask about the Chutney while you pick up your items at the market ðŸ˜Š

Jerod T.During our stay we noticed several seals bobbing around in the waters near the rock formation at the end of the beach!
Pretty good coffee at the R&R drive thru.
Julie M.We loved the fact we were right on the beach. We didn't partake of the Rockaway Beach eateries because we spent one day touring Tillamook and one day touring Astoria so we chose to eat out there.
Preetha J.Walks along the beach, deep sea fishing. Children's park
Seana March M.The beach was awesome and Rockaway beach was pretty much in the middle of the places we wanted to see!

Ellen S.Grumpy's had a great breakfast and Nehalem Bay Winery was a lot of fun.
Linda & Collin H.Beachcombing at a minus tide was fun.
Mark S.We spent one day at Nehalem Bay state park which is highly recommended.
Stephanie R.I've been to this beach many times and usually stay at a friends Beach House. This time there were too many ladies to fit in one house so we rented Aunties House.It was very clean, comfortable and conveniently located to the beach and shopping. We walked everywhere!
Our favorite place is the Little White Church Antique store. I almost always fine some good treasures there and this trip was no exception.
Maureen L.The beach itself was all we needed! We did travel north about 30 minutes to hike Neahkahnie Mountain which was gorgeous - do wait for a clear day, though, as we arrived at the top to see only fog even though we could hear the ocean below! Still a gorgeous woodsy hike, though. The scenic overlooks around that section of the highway - between Neahkahnie and Arch Cape - are incredible and worth driving just a few more minutes north to see. Also - get your groceries in Tillamook before heading there as the little "market" in Rockaway Beach is more of a convenience store and the next nearby grocery in Manzanita was pretty pricey.The Blue Heron cheese and wine tasting place in Tillamook is also a fun stop to load up on wine before heading to the beach!
Amy H.Barview jetty
Kristi J.Old smokehouse has great food!
Geri S.Beach Bite Restaurant - great food and great service
Coffee shop on north end of Rockaway Beach (can't remember the name of it) - very good food and coffee, really nice people working there

Susan L.We enjoyed access at the end of the road to the jetty. There are tide pools and sea lions. During the week there were very few people. We enjoyed great weather.
Theresa M.We found a little cove area by the jetty with hardly anyone around, beautiful beach, and seals playing right in front of us in the water. Stayed there for hours.
Arturo R.THE VIEW WAS GREAT
Maggie L.Sand Dollar Restaurant is a two block walk and great food.
Corinna H.Old Oregon Smokehouse for take-out. Very friendly, incredible clam chowder and fish & chips.
We drove to Girbaldi (south) to pick up some fresh crabs +. Also, checked out the fishing, crabbing boats in town - very cool.
Todd P.Tillamook Cheese Factory
Amber J.We love the beach because it is not as crowded as Seaside or Cannon Beach. Also, we like the central location between Tillamook and Seaside. It's easy to get to both towns within 30 minutes to enjoy their sights.
Kay N.Jetty Fishery, Old Oregon Seafood
John B.pirate's cove resturant
DOUGLAS B.Loved the beach and coastal views
Christin B.We loved the Trash and Treasures gift shop a few blocks away.
Lily C.Great beach access within half a block. Loved Blue Heron in Tillamook and the Rogue Brewery in Astoria. Locally, Trash & Treasures has some surprising finds and the grocery mart across the street has a wide selection of items. Pelican Brewery in Tillamook was low-key and had nice outdoor seating.
Alyca A.We loved the Offshore Grill, which was recommended in the Ara Vista info book. Great breakfast!
Erin G.Tillamook Cheese Factory
Ralph H.It was nice being so close to the beach! And walking distance to grocery store and restaurants, we found sand dollar restaurant the best place to eat in town.
Ryan B.Kelly's Marina- awesome first-time crabbing experience
Bonfire on the beach!

David C.Park side Cafe in Garabaldi
Molly F.We participated in the SOLV beach cleanup, which was terrific.
Marcy J.We really enjoyed spending as much time on the beach as possible. The local shops were great too.
Brian W.st. marys church by the sea had a perfect 2 person bench for oceanfront sunrise. the only downside was the waste management plant at the end of the block, cant really do anything about that just a smelly inconvenience when your down wind from it
Molli C.Rockaway is a great place for beach time. As for the town itself, there's a couple cute shops and cafÃ©s, but really it's more about beach location and enjoying time there.
Brenda R.We tried to go to Sand Dollar for breakfast, but they don't serve breakfast, we ended up at Pirate's Cove (a little south of Rockaway) and had a wonderful breakfast! The antique shops in Wheeler were excellent!
Jennifer M.We enjoyed the Tillamook Air Museum on this trip. It was a first, and our boys (ages 9 and 10) thought it was one of the highlights of the vacation! As always, you can't beat the beautiful, practically private beaches.
Rose L.Grateful for the local market. We forgot spices/herbs and the kitchen only had salt, pepper, sugar. We were able to buy various items at the market , walking distance, including a soccer ball!
Jenny A.You suggested the restaurant where your office is located, which looks nice, but to take a large group is close to impossible as they do not take reservation as we found out on Monday. With minors the wait would have been long and they were kinda rude. So we called down to Pirates Cove and got right in and had a fantastic meal. I would tell groups over four people to call first before loading two cars and heading into town.
Christine S.Sand Dollar restaurant was awesome!!
Richard G.Love flamingo Jims
Marilyn S.Munson Creek Falls is nearby and an easy walk to the falls.
Quiana T.The beach
Lisa S.The Sand Dollar restaurant right at the public beck parking is great.
Jim M.Check out the Smokehouse in Rockaway for some Great Smoked Salmon
Twilla B.We drove to the Tillamook Cheese Factory and the Blue Heron French Cheese Company (both in Tillamook, Oregon). It was a very fun experience that my family would definitely do again
Andrea And Dave J.the beach
Irene C.We stopped in and blew our own glass egg. It was on 5th street. Great experience.
Steve J.Cape Meares, Tillamook Cheese
Teresa L.Kelly's Marina was a blast- we went crabbing for the very first time and it was awesome. We loved the breweries and the wineries. We traveled up and down the Coast and enjoyed the beaches and the views. It was a wonderful family trip.
Jesse J.Great beach access from the house
Joanna D.The Rockaway Beach library and city park were nice. But the beach was the best!
Sara B.We love visiting Flamingo Jim's, getting coffee at the roadside coffee stand and at the cafÃ© across the street from the condo (Offshore Grill), we enjoy going to Mass at the beautiful church right off the beach, St. Mary's by the Sea, running on the beach in the mornings, watching the sunsets from the decks of the condo... and just enjoying the beauty and family!
Krysta S.There's a great little souvenir place across the street, Flamingo jims, I think, and a couple shops where you can get Tillamook ice cream cones within walking distance.
Lauren S.Cannon Beach, the beach right across from the house with the twin rocks, Tillamook Cheese Factory
Mary C.We love how "un-populated" the beach is. We stay in rollaway because it's quiet.
Rachel T.The beach was great but the whole town seemed to be under construction and our walk there was muddy. I was also unaware that a block from the beach meant we needed to cross the highway.
Elyse P.Manhattan Beach was fun, it's a great place to fly kites
Gene H.The Sand Dollar was a great place for breakfast. The staff was exceptionally friendly and great coffee. The breakfast burito is a must.
Kathy S.The drive up to hug point at low tide was really enjoyable. The tide pools and caves were very interesting.
Sara B.We drove North to Hug Point Park, which was a gorgeous beach with tide pools, a waterfall, big rocks to climb on, caves to explore... perfect spot for an adventure with our five year old!
Cheryl H.The shopping was fun. Bingo on Saturday is also fun. The town has bingo on Friday and Saturday night.
Kelly & Anna C.The Beach along Rockaway is fantastic, very beautiful. The walk from the house to the beach is less than 1 minute.
We highly recommend visiting Kelly's Brighten Marina. They will either cook you the freshest crab you have ever eaten or rent you everything you need to catch your own. They are about 3 miles North on Highway 101.
David F.Jetty fishery marina for the best crab dinner ever.
Jacquline B.The views were spectacular and the area was easy to maneuver.
Erin S.Kelly's Marina for crabbing.
Linda C.I love the short walk to the beach and the fact it wasn't too far from Seaside and Lincoln City
Taryn O.The kids LOVE Flamingo Jims!
Richard A.Easy Beach access from the deck. not having to find an entry to the beach.
Tami H.This was my first trip to the Oregon coast. Loved the drive south to Newport, what views of the ocean!!
Chrystabel L.Nearby town Garibaldi
Patrick B.I love Rockaway Beach, it has such a calmness to it. The beach is gorgeous and the town, nor the beach is crowded. You can walk down the side streets with your dogs without having to worry about watching for cars. We really enjoy Manzanita, too, so we made the short drive north a number of times. My fiancÃ© stopped in the Offshore Grill and Coffehouse, and was pleased with the friendliness and the coffee he ordered.
Marion S.Short walk to the beach and Jetty. There were minus tides while we were there so we got to see several star fish along the jetty. Love this area so much we bought a piece of property there!
Mike F.Tillamook Cheese Factory, don't know the name of it, but about 15 minutes north of Rockaway Beach there is an amazing viewpoinf off the highway with gorgeous views of that whole portion of the Oregon Coast.
Brian F.always love the Old Oregon Smokehouse for their smoked salmon,chowder, fried clam strips, etc. and the Sand Dollar has delicious food
Tami H.This was my first trip to the Oregon coast. Loved the drive south to Newport, what views of the ocean!!
Sara E.Beach was great. Wish we could have drove on it
Krista B.Great access to the beach. Also had an amazing views of the beach from the upstairs.
Elizabeth B.We enjoyed the vintage and antique shops. Also enjoyed time on the beach exploring.
Alan J.The cottage is very close to surrounding beach towns that offer very good restaurants and shopping experiences. The Twin-Rocks along Rockaway Beach are gorgeous to view and the access to the beach is quite close to the cottage itself. Fun area to visit and luckily the March weather was especially nice during our visit to your area. Lots of Sand Dollars were found during the early mornings **LOW TIDES**.
Randal W.We went to the jetty about 1 mile south of the property, and were thrilled to see several whales!
Annie L.Flamingo hims is always a great stop.
Justin W.Really only the Beach but towns surrounding were good
Jeff L.For the best food places to eat, plan to eat in Garibaldi, Manzanita or Cannon Beach.
Rochelle B.Hiking up to the jetty and Happy Hour at the Sand dollar. The unit could use some ice trays since the ice machine wasnt working.
Natalya D.Yes, We loved the ability to walk to the beach and the views were awesome.
Rhonda G.I love rockaway, it is a very small town, but I love how quiet & relaxed it is. It is a great central location, to go for a drive to another coastal town.
Roxanna H.We found some great gifts for family and friends at Flamingo Jims! Also, Barb at The Troller in Garibaldi makes the best Bloody Mary's I've ever had!!
Joseph L.There is a shop down the road that is full of little curiosities. You can identify it by all the birdhouses. Richard, the owner, has everything from fresh local honey to museum quality artifacts from ancient china. By far one of the coolest shops i've ever been in. The tillamook factory is a must see for the cheese/fudge/ice cream lover... great place to go for lunch :)
Susan B.We had a beautiful walk on the beach to the Sand Dollar restaurant, we ate outside and watched the waves.
Thomas C.The view from Unit 202
Wendi T.Because March is too cold to spend much time on the beach we explored local venues. The Tillamook Cheese Factory was well worth our time. The Tillamook Country Smoker outlet store in Bay City has great values on beef jerky type products. An awesome day trip was to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse and Outstanding Natural Area in Newport. Check the tide schedule to make sure you get to explore the tide pools.
Rochelle B.Fabulous, weatherðŸ˜ƒ
Sophon P.neighbor was too close.. Beach/back yard was awsome
Lori M.it was like having your own beach!!!
