Sandlake, Oregon is a tiny, quiet community that serves as a gateway to fantastic coastal activities. When you stay at one of Vacasa's Oregon Coast vacation rentals you will be right next door to the Sand Lake Recreation Area, which has more than 1,000 acres of spectacular sand dunes, as well as a lake, beach access, and plenty of gorgeous scenery.
Though many people pass right by Sandlake without a thought on their way north to Tillamook (16 miles away), or south to Lincoln City, 30 miles down Highway 101, this community has a lot to offer visitors. Although there aren't many businesses in town, the larger Pacific City, just eight miles away, has plenty of places where you can have a nice restaurant meal or stock up on groceries.
Bring along your ATVs to explore the nearby dunes, or try out sandboarding down the slopes. There is also an estuary where you can go fishing, crabbing, and birdwatching, and the beautiful Sand Lake itself is a great place to kayak or swim. And of course, the stunning Pacific Ocean is just past the dunes, so you can also enjoy a nice long stroll on the sand while listening to the waves crash on the shore.
Come stay at one of our cozy and quiet Oregon Coast vacation rentals and be right next to all the action of the sand dunes!
