Lincoln City’s 7½ miles of coastline sees waves as high as 30 feet and peak winds of more than 100 miles per hour during the height of the season.

The Calm After the Storm

The beach conditions can be particularly beautiful following a storm. There are always all sorts of treasures that wash up on the shore for beachcombers to discover as well. Seashells and agates are sure to wash up, and occasionally antique glass floats from Japan still wash ashore. Just make sure to use common sense when beachcombing after a storm, just as you should when going out during bad weather. Don’t try to walk down to the waterfront in the middle of a dangerous storm and don’t pick up anything if you don’t know what it is first. That way you can ensure happy memories and enjoy the best that Lincoln City has to offer for many years to come!
