About Samoa Beach in Samoa, California
Samoa Beach is the long strand of beach on the ocean side of the Samoa Peninsula near Eureka. The small community of Samoa with its historic Samoa Cookhouse Restaurant is nearby on the peninsula.
The beach here stretches continuously south to Samoa Dunes Recreation Area at the North Jetty and entrance to Humboldt Bay. This strand continues north to Manila Beach and the sandy shoreline seems endless after that.
This is a great beachcombing destination with driftwood and other items washing onshore. Surfers and great white sharks are both common in these waters leading to shark attacks in recent years.
To get here, drive west on Highway 255 from Highway 101 in Eureka and turn south onto New Navy Base Road. The parking lot will be on your right across the road from a Samoa housing development. From there it’s just a short walk through the dunes to Samoa Beach. An alternate access point to Samoa Beach is at the USS Milwaukee Memorial Marker across from an old pulp mill just south. The USS Milwaukee is one of California’s shipwrecks you can see (when winter storms remove sand from the rusting ship).
Camping for RV’s is available at the Samoa Boat Ramp father south on New Navy Base Road.
