Crescent Beach is a secluded beach within Ecola State Park. Located between Ecola and Chapman Points, its wide dark sands are reached via the 3.2-kilometre Crescent Beach Trail. Along the way, you’ll encounter a small waterfall, and also the possibility of elk. The beach itself is known to be used by populations of seals and sealions, while migrating gray and killer whales can sometimes be seen in deeper waters.
In addition to a rarely-used expanse of sand, Crescent Beach also has some tidal pools, revealing all manner of sea life at low tide. Some impressive sea stacks can be seen whatever the tide is doing, while the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse is visible to the north in all but the worst of fogs, even though it hasn’t functioned in close to a generation.
