Indian Beach

Indian Beach, in Ecola State Park, is a two kilometer long pocket beach tucked into the southern side of Tillamook Head. The upper beach is a very steep coarse gravel and cobble berm - the lower beach is flat and sandy.


A small stream empties out onto the northwest end of the beach. And a landslide (or several landslides) empty out onto the other end of the beach. The cliffs that rise behind the beach is Columbia River Basalt that flowed out to the coast 15 million years ago, before the modern coast range was established.
