Very pleasant town to stroll and shop

We toured around the "downtown" area of Cannon Beach, shopped a little, and just soaked up the atmosphere of the whole area. People are very pleasant and courteous.

Breathtaking incomparable landscape, huge sandy beach, fabulous sundown... all this nested in a gorgeous little town, filled with appealing stores, galleries and restaurants! Impossible to ask for more! We visited Cannon Beach in February in a lovely sunny day; I can not imagine this beach could be crowded even in summer time since it is really big and wide; there...

If you wish to visit here, you can come here any season; summer is the best time and a lot of people who love beach come here either. Don't forget to take photo and visit candy stores there.

I've been to a fair few beaches, and this is definitely one of my favorites. The beach is enormous with plenty of room to spread out and explore. We went on a warm sunny day, and on a cold rainy day and we had a blast both times. Haystack rock and the other formations are gorgeous to look at, with... More

Long open beach being enjoyed by all ages. People were flying kites, checking out tide pools by Hay Stack Rock, building sand castles and in the evening sitting around fires on the beach. The beach must be one of the most beautiful on the west oast.

A visit to Cannon Beach was a stop on a tour we took on our West Coast cruise on Princess. Beautiful beach and wonderful little town with interesting shops, galleries and restaurants. Would have loved to have been able to spend at least a day there. Hope to go back someday. Visit the Primary Elements Gallery if you go.

I love this beach dogs can run free, very well-behave dogs. have good training and manners. Also when you walk over to Haystack you see starfish and I enmities wavy tentacles in water all different colors. Bring camera they have beautiful sunsets when not clouds or rain.

I love Cannon Beach, but had never before visited it in May. What a perfectly marvelous time to enjoy its beauty, There were so many gorgeous plants and colorful flowers--it was almost like walking through a botanical garden. The galleries and shops have fantastic photographs, paintings, and a huge assortment of decorative items. The restaurants and cafes have an abundant... More

We were at a conference in Portland and decided to go to the coast. A friend suggested Cannon Beach, We really had no idea what to expect, thinking it'd probably be ike east coast beaches. We we so impressed with how majestic it was. These huge rocks coming out of the water, 100s of feet high (I think), huge wide... More
