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

Cannon Beach is breathtaking! The entire community is wonderful, and there is something there for everyone. We traveled through mountains, small, curvy roads surrounded by trees you'd only see in a fairytale. It entire experience was amazing! There's a strip of shops for everyone...everything from candy shops, t-shirts, decor, to expensive art. The beaches are clean, easy to access, and... More

We drove from Portland to Cannon Beach for a day trip. What an amazing drive through mountains! Beautiful scenery right next to the ocean. It was a very overcast day and the water was cold however our boys (11 & 12) still ventured into the water. We enjoyed wandering through the town, eating and exploring the shops.

Cannon Beach offers something for everyone! The shopping is a nice combination of t-shirt shops and upscale art galleries and clothing stores, and the restaurant options make any length stay more enjoyable.

Definitely a summer focus for beach lovers. We had one day to drive the Oregon coast and this was one place we chose to stop. Fun to be there and see the "Haystack", walk the beach, check out some of the shopping and do some people watching. The shops were interesting with several that had unique and really special items.... More

The beach was humongous and lots of space to walk with Haystack Rock for some bird watching. Easy access all along the beach with restaurants and downtown shops within a block. Cons: Cold cold ocean and people reserve/poach all the fire pits with their chairs for the night before most people wake up in the morning.

What a beautiful, amazing, beach! The haystacks are just incredible! The beach is well kept and is just one of those places that you have to visit.
