Roads End State Recreation Site a fine place for a romantic stroll with tidepools, islands, and the headland with its hidden cove. Sailboarders come from everywhere. When Lincoln City
beaches are crowded or windy, this sheltered spot just north of town is surprisingly quiet. A short path descends to the beach at the pebbly mouth of a lazy little creek. The north beach is topped by a jumble of quaint old cottages until the beach narrows to the massive Cascade Head. Fragments of lava form ragged islands where comic, long-necked cormorants dry their black wings atop guano-stained roosts.
