Stump Beach is a secluded sandy strand at the mouth of Miller Creek. The coastal prairie you walk through to get there is mostly open grassland, with scattered trees and shrubs. The view of the Pacific Ocean along the way is magnificent, and you may find yourself mesmerized by the plumes of froth billowing skyward as wave after wave crashes against the rocky shore.
