Oceanside, Oregon: Inside Oceanside's Tunnel, Cave - Oregon coast Three Capes Loop


Inside Maxwell Point, a tunnel beckons with its mysterious concrete entrance on the southern side.

The majority of the time, the point itself is awash in massive waves and it’s impossible to cross to the other side, where a mesmerizing secret beach awaits. But at serious low tide events, you can cross this threshold and find an intriguing bit of clandestine paradise.

Once inside, it’s a cave-like experience that’s a little disconcerting, like a goofy haunted house attraction at a state fair, but no more scary than that. Jagged shapes and fuzzy structures lurk in the dark of the tunnel, and you sometimes find yourself stumbling on the bumpy floor.

It’s really the perfect place for a first date, should you want to take that someone to a place where they’re likely to suddenly hold onto you.
