My wife and I met here almost 30 years ago, and we visit whenever we can! Love the ocean setting, the unique shops, the friendly folks, and of course Haystack Rock. We have purchased paintings of local artists, jewelry unique to the Oregon Coast, and eaten superb seafood, etc. at the local restaurants. If you visit the Oregon Coast, you... More

Loved Cannon Beach in our short visit to Haystack Rock. Seaside gets all the credit, but it's too busy for us. Cannon is more laid back and more of what we expect from the Oregon Coast.

This beach is beautiful and massive. The scenery is just breathtaking. We walked to Haystack rock and looked at the tide-pools there - there were hermit crabs, lots of anemones and the occasional starfish. In late August, the beach is so large that it still seems very quiet. We loved it here.

Our second time to Cannon Beach. Our kids and dog love coming here. The beach is pet friendly and dogs don't need to be on leash so they can run around in the surf or sand. Lots of opportunities to fly kites and toast marshmallows at the pit fires each night. The water is pretty cool but my kids didn't... More

This is a gorgeous place….except for the crowds of summer. Come after Labor Day…September is the most beautiful month of all on this stretch of Oregon coast. You can find a place to park in town, walk a virtually deserted beach, have your choice of any number of hotels and restaurants, take in a Coaster Theatre live performance, and enjoy... More

The sand is compact, the fog in the morning is dramatic, the views of the rocks, including the famous Haystack Rock, are photogenic, the people are friendly, and you'll meet a lot of friendly dogs along the way.

Cannon Beach was so lovely, flowers everywhere, a huge huge beach, surfers, naturalists, and just a wonderful little beach town.

I just loved how quaint and cute this town is. Small enough to be able to walk just about anywhere! The water is freezing, so I didn't go in deeper than my ankles, but we saw kids playing in the water and people surfing (in full wet suits!). Building fires on the beach is a fun activity that is popular.... More
