Myers Creek Beach lies on Oregon's southern coast where the small Myers Creek meets the Pacific Ocean. This ocean beach is seemingly a forgotten gem as it lies well away from large metropolitan cities. Nearly 2 miles of soft silky sand stretch along the Oregon coast creating this beach dotted by large haystack rocks. During low tide large pools are left near the bases of the rocks, creating nearly perfect reflections of the surroundings. Occasionally high wind conditions create temporary sand dunes that are later washed away during high tides. Though the high winds can be obnoxious for beach goers, many wind surfers come to tackle the waves.

This beach is part of the Pistol River State Scenic Viewpoint because it lies just a couple miles north of the Pistol River mouth. Pistol River winds 21 miles through the southern Coast Range, encompassing a watershed approximately 105 square miles in size. Nearly 57% of this area is managed by the Forest Service for forestry purposes.

A profound concept originally envisioned by governor Oswald West, in 1967 the Oregon legislature ultimately realized his vision of making the entire Oregon Coast forever open to the public in a piece of landmark legislation titled the Oregon Beach Bill, officially making all 363 miles public land. "The People's Coast" is truly a one-of-a-kind coastline, a unique blend of mountains and rocky stacks, towering old growth forests, marine sanctuaries, tide pools and kelp forests, charming towns, historic fishing communities, world-class golfing, breweries, and simply jaw-dropping scenic beaches.
