BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The park's easily accessed and reliably windy beach is very popular for kite flying. This is the venue for two of the world's largest kite festivals, hence Lincoln City's nickname: Kite Capital of the World.
  • The wind also makes this an ideal spot for kitesurfing, and ocean kayakers also take to the waves. But this is no spot for beginners—the undertow is powerful.
  • The walk to the beach is a short one, and there's plenty of parking (all free in Lincoln City). While none of the city's beaches have lifeguards, there is a visitor information booth where you can stop for current ocean and tide info before heading into the water.
Billed as "the shortest river in the world," D River flows a mere 120 feet from Devils Lake into the ocean.
