We could not have picked a better weekend to visit Cannon Beach, clear blue skies, moderate temperatures, very little wind. Walking on the beach is a real pleasure. The backdrop of the coast mountains, and Haystack Rock and the tide-pools. This is among the most beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest. There were lots of photographers on the beach with...

One of my favorite beaches in the world. Breathtaking. Perfect for walking and relaxing. The kids love the ocean in the summer, but the water is definitely cold.

Loved the big loud waves crashing and the long beach to walk each day. The views are spectacular of Haystack Rock. It was a great place to just get outside and go on an adventure - and each day offered something new & different as the lighting with the sunrise/sunset would be completely different than the prior.

Cannon Beach is a must stop on any trip down the Oregon Coast. It is a walking town full of shops and restaurants, from pizza to full service. Then just a couple of blocks to the beach to experience the ocean and Haystack Rock. Don't just drive by on the Highway, drop down into Cannon Beach and stay awhile.

We made a day trip out to cannon beach from Portland and it was worth the drive. It was so beautiful! It was November so it was cold but still totally worth it. I would go back in a heartbeat, such beautiful views and fresh crisp salty air. Enjoy it! :)

Same review as Haystack Rock. I love beaches that arent crowded during the off season so I can walk and take pictures with my wife. I love the smell of the ocean and the cleanliness of this beach

Beautiful beach with amazing views in every direction. Nice for long walks, tidepooling, birdwatching (watch for puffins!) and just chillin' (literally chilly too- dress warm all along the Oregon Coast-it was cold and windy when we were there in the first week of June!)

Beach access is getting harder to find. Average beach though. Still really nice. Lots of little fishes around the rock in a couple of tide pools.

Not your average beach. Not your average view. Breathtaking contrasts between waters, rock formations, sand & sky. Was foggy earlier part of the day we were there & it gave a very "mysterious" air to the whole scene...great to see. Sun broke out...but did not get over-crowded like too many do. Plenty of space. Spots to wander.

I have been to many beaches in a few different countries and all over America. Cannon Beach is by far the most beautiful beach that I have ever seen in my life. The fog and the water crashing into the rocks and on the beach was breathtaking. Did I mention it was extremely dog friendly?
