Along the coast are there any beaches that are swimmable?

Jump to last reply

This is a New Englander speaking. I just got home from a beautiful walk on a gorgeous beach close to my home. The water temperatures were in the mid 50's. I did not swim (it was an early evening walk and going to dinner after) but there were lots of people in the ocean.

I am planning a trip to Oregon in July. It's been difficult for me as I read lots of reviews of the towns, beaches,and lodging along the coast that nobody talks about swimming. I have heard the water is cold and I imagine rough. When I vacation we love to get in the water.

Besides hopefully finding swimming holes in the McKenzie River or the Metolius River near Sisters, please let me know if/where we could stop along the coast for a beach we can swim in. Thank you,
