Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Twin Rocks offers a wide-open, relatively uncrowded beach near the unincorporated community of the same name on the Oregon coast. The main attraction that makes this stretch of the coastline unique are the Twin Rocks. Rising to a height of 88 feet and originally known as Profile Rocks, the lava formations are believed to have been created millions of years ago by a lava flow connected with the geologically active region at Yellowstone National Park.

In addition to the view, there are often makeshift shelters and swings along the beach for families to enjoy, along with plenty of open stretches for picnics, volleyball, beach bocce, and other games in the sand. In November, perhaps the most exciting time of the year at this location, the low angle of the sun casts a glowing sunset through the 35-foot hole in the arch of Twin Rocks. At this time you'll be sure to find a gathering of photographers and beach-walkers alike gazing at the unique glow.
