Welcome to Three Arch Capes! Should you wish to explore the miles of sandy beaches, grab a bite to eat or just forgot your toothbrush, here is some practical information about the area.


Of course you want to walk the beach, right?

We are just a short walk and an even shorter drive to a three mile stretch of beach that takes you all the way to Oceanside...and beyond if the tide is low enough! To walk to the beach go straight out of the driveway and head northwest on the dirt road until the hillside curves left. Follow the grass/brush edge to the path — just past the big tree. This will take you down to Netarts Bay Drive. Please be very careful on the path as it can be muddy and slick! Turn right and walk the short distance to the marina. Continue walking to the left of the Schooner Restaurant for perhaps 200 yards. Soon you will see a picnic table on your left where you can easily access the beach. To drive to the beach head back to the main road (Netarts Hwy) and take a left. Travel approximately 1/4 mile and take a left when you see the sign for the Schooner...the one with the big Pepsi logo. You will soon be in the marina parking lot, where you can park for as long as you like. Follow the directions above past the Schooner to the beach.



Rachel's is an excellent choice for breakfast and lunch! The service and food are great and the prices reasonable. Take a left on Netarts Hwy and you will see Rachel's on the right in just a few blocks.

The Schooner

The restaurant and bar you can see from the front window! They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as having a full bar. The excellent pizza is made fresh in an old fashioned brick pizza oven. The prices are reasonable, but service can be slow. Michkos Pub & Grub The name sort of says it all...Michkos is a local hangout and can be fun. They have a full bar, pool tables, video gambling and simple pub food. Take a left on Netarts Hwy and you will see Michkos on the left.

Rosanna's Café

This is the fine dining option in the area. Located in Oceanside, Rosanna's has excellent food, friendly service and a beautiful view of the beach and Three Arch Rocks. If you want to sample well prepared local seafood at fair prices this is the place. Take a left on Netarts Hwy and travel the three or so miles into Oceanside. Rosanna's is on the left.

Groceries / Supplies

If you are planning to cook in and need several days worth of groceries, we recommend that you shop in Tillamook. As you come into town, take a right on Hwy 101 and you will find Fred Meyer about a mile up on the left. If you prefer Safeway, cross 101 and take a left on Stillwell. Safeway is just two blocks down on the corner of Third Street.

For last minute items we have two very convenient stores in Netarts!

Josie's Bayside Market & Deli

A little of everything is how we refer to Josie's! They have a limited selection of all kinds of food, supplies and gifts. Their selection of wine and beer is good and they even rent movies. The pizza and sandwiches from the deli are fresh and tasty. Certainly try a Tillamook ice cream milk shake for desert! Take a left on Netarts Hwy and travel about 1/2 mile. Turn left on Crab Avenue and Josie's is on the left.

Netarts Grocery

If for some reason Josie's is out of something, you can try the smaller Netarts Grocery. We are actually amazed that this almost always works out for us! Conveniently enough, Netarts Grocery is right next door to Josie's on the corner of Crab Ave. and Netarts Hwy.

"Ne ta at"

Netarts, originally Ne ta at, which means "near the water," was originally settled by the Tillamook Indians in the early 1400's. A community of just over 700 residents, Netarts may be the last undiscovered gem of the Oregon Coast. Never crowded like Seaside or Lincoln City, Netarts is a peaceful oasis where the views and the wildlife are the main attraction. Enjoy some of the best clamming and crabbing anywhere, or sit and watch the sea lions sunning themselves! A three mile stretch of sandy beach has stunning views of Three Arch Rocks, declared a National Wildlife Refuge by Teddy Roosevelt. We happen to think Netarts is a perfect getaway from the daily grind and certainly hope you do too!
