Ophir Beach is an undeveloped sandy beach on the Oregon Coast seven miles north of Gold Beach in Curry County, United States.[1] It is more than 8.5 kilometres (5.3 mi) in length with the south end at Nesika Beach and the north end at a cape named the Devils Backbone.[2][3] The beach is bounded by U.S. Route 101 on the east. Euchre Creek flows westward to the ocean cutting through the northern third of the beach.[4]

There is a state maintained safety rest area at Ophir Beach with picnic tables and restrooms.[5]

This beach is sometimes referred to as Nesika Beach.[6]
