Overlooking the vast Pacific, Rockaway Beach Wayside offers plenty of opportunities for leisure and recreation. The picturesque beach features 11 km (7 mi) of soft, smooth sand only sporadically broken by scarcely forested dunes. Lined with little shops and eateries serving seafood specialties, the beach also boasts public restrooms, benches and picnic tables. Look for the two large boulders rising from the sea just off shore to the south that make an interesting and most photogenic rock formation.

  • Loved walking the beach with our puppy and letting him off the leash to play ball. I got some great Milky Way photos from darker areas of the long beach and highly recommend for night photography.  more »
