The beach was not crowded (4th of July weekend). Large beach area is well maintained. The view of the rock formations in the ocean are remarkable.

This beach at Cannon Beach is really great for all ages. The little town has lots going on around it focused with the beach. There is the famous Haystack Rock located there and it is amazing to see.

A large family group had a great afternoon here. Kids had not trouble finding fun things to do. Lots of kite flying, biking (fat-tired uprights and cool recunbents), and sand-digging. Water is cold (55) but that didn't stop the kids. Haystack Rock is a nice landmark attraction. Recommend you park in the lot just north of Moe's Restaurant with restrooms... More

Any trip to the Oregon Coast should include a visit to Cannon Beach and the "Haystack" rock. It can be crowded on weekends, but there is a lot of beach. Get a tide table and visit at low tide. There is a great tidal pool in front of Haystack monolith rock. There are plenty of food options in town or... More

Cannon beach is an amazing an amazing beach, almost a throw back to Non commercial family friendly times. We have travelled with our family 3 years straight and our kids play for hours on the beach on any weather meeting new kids and families with ever Visit. The beach is picturesque and has a community friendly feel to it. Awesome!

The beach is wide and roomy! The sand is packed and easy to walk on. The lodging is set back some from the beach, although our resort inn was very close to the beach and surf area. The beach was not crowded, although it was mid July when we visited. I would recommend this beach to anyone!

I haven't been there in years, and it was different then I remembered. I remembered it being a lot more crowded. It is a nice beach to put your feet in the water, build a sandcastle, fly a kite, have a picnic, or just sit and relax. The only down side is there is not much to do there besides... More

We drove through the mountains for over an hour from Portland just to see this beach and it was worth the drive. Peaceful, picturesque, truly a beautiful beach. The water was very cold for summer however it did not deter our children from frolicking in the water. A quaint little town with cute restaurants however nothing that was outstanding for... More

Hubby and I spent hours walking this beach and never tired of the view. If you love walking or people watching, this is a great place. The beach is wide and you can see people flying kites, building fires, jumping the waves close to shore, bike riding and jogging. the beach is marked with numbers so you know where you... More
