Actually, the least populated coastal area in the lower 48 is found between Rockport and Ferndale California.

Does anyone know of anywhere that has ocean waves that break right into trees or marsh lands? Is there such thing in the usa? No stones or beach where the water runs up, but just straight into a woodland or marsh area...?

The "Forgotten Coast" of Florida. It has that name for a reason.

Thanks
Hana, Hawaii. It's not in the Northwest, but is rural for the most part. The population was 1,235 at the 2010 census. Getting there is nerve wracking, the roads are twisty (Road To Hana) , a lot of times only one lane in both directions with many blind spots. It's a beautiful area and worth the drive. What surprised me was, there were working ranches there.

I venture to guess the Texas stretch is less populated. That California stretch is well under 100 miles, while the Texas stretch is closer to 150. South of Corpus Christi, there really isn't anything within 15-20 miles of the coast until you get deep into the Rio Grande Valley. And then you have the whole Padre Island National Seashore just off the coast.

Having said that I have no idea what the beaches in that stretch look like, and it's certainly not a place anyone is going to visit.
