DescriptionNamed for the placer mining prevalent until an 1861 flood swept the deposits out to sea, Gold Beach is a gateway for many activities in this popular coastal and river recreation area. The coastal vistas offer rewarding settings for photographers, especially along the 37-mile drive south to California via US 101.
