Beach Safety and Use

The City has a Lifesaving Program which operates from late May through early September on our beaches. The Lifesaving Program page has information on ways that visitors can safely enjoy their time on the beach. The area around Haystack Rock is designated a marine sanctuary and is subject to special care to maintain the fragile balance established there between human and marine life. Overnight camping is not allowed on City beaches, but the State of Oregon does have parks which allow camping. Check out the Beach Safety Tips!
