Cannon Beach is lined by low rise apartments houses and hotels but still maintains a wild and rugged feel. The beach is flat and clean and has Pacific breakers crashing into the sand with the seastacks and Haystack rock providing a beautiful backdrop. a fantastic place to clear the cobwebs and take in a lot of fresh sea air -...

This is NOT a place to come with kids. This is mostly for adults both young and old. People with kids should really go to Seaside and Lincoln City! Those places are more more geared towards kids with games, shopping and food. Cannon Beach has more of the foodies restaurants and shopping. You won't find a gaming place for the... More

This is the best beach I have walked! It is absolutely beautiful. We walked up and down the beach every morning and afternoon. If you look closely, you can find seaglass or whole sand dollars. The tide pools have beautiful starfish in them (around Haystack rock), and the birds are a hoot! We got lucky and there was never a... More

Have spent many years making trips to our favorite Pacific Ocean spot on the Oregon Coast. The view of Haystack Rock from our rented condo is spectacular.

Just as we got to Cannon Beach, it started raining heavily. We waited a bit, and there was a break in the downpour. We went to the beach, took a few photos, and then it started raining again. It was nice for the few minutes we were there.

I loved this beach! The sand is hard for me to walk in, sometimes. But this beach has a large area that is easier,(sand is packed more from the water, I guess) but it is much easier for people with bad knees. You can walk forever, or so it seems, in either direction! Sunsets are beyond belief!

Love the beach and the tide pools when we arrived the sun was out but as we walked the beach toward the haystack the fogged rolled in and it added a neat effect. We also enjoyed the waves very large. But the beauty of the ocean is amazing

Great for the kids to fly their kites, and good for the business that sells them. sometimes the winds are a little strong and can crash the kites to ground

No wifi, showers need attention. Way too expensive. Camp sites too close. Enjoy being close enough to the beach and able to walk to main part of town for shopping.
