Gleneden Beach is a small coastal community sandwiched between Lincoln City and Depoe Bay. Destination attractions include the Salishan Golf and Spa, a popular golf resort that has been expanded recently to an 18-hole course with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Most of Gleneden Beach's commercial property is located at the resort, and includes a mall of tastefully selected stores. A gallery, a wine shop, a deli and several gift stores are on site, along with a full-service spa and restaurants.
Gleneden Beach is nestled amongst a string of Pacific Coast state parks, each with its own unique coastal attractions and view of the ocean. Gleneden Beach State Recreation Site offers beach access with occasional up-close views of seals and other wildlife, and a picnic area. D River Recreation Site, just north of Gleneden, is named after one of the shortest rivers in the world. Its reputation is well known, though, as it is also the home of two annual kite festivals. The Central Coast's windy nature lends perfectly to kiting as well as comfortable summer strolls.
Camping and full-service RV sites are available at both Beverly Beach State Park and South Beach State Park, south of Gleneden. South Beach features kayaking and both state parks are popular summer locations.
Several vacation rentals and a bed and breakfast inn are located in Gleneden Beach. Gleneden Beach is seven miles south of Lincoln City, which features live theater, a cinema and a casino.
