We walked the beach at low tide but because of the rough seas wasn't able to see the tide pools, maybe next time.

One of the great beaches and ocean playground. Nearby restaurants are very good. I like it both at high as well as low tide.

People from the nearby beachfront homes, lodges, and neighborhoods walk up and down the beach constantly. And, it seems, everyone has a dog (all are very good owners that immediately clean up after their pups). You can walk for miles or just sit and people watch.

Cannon Beach was beautiful. It was a short drive down from Ecola State Park. Tight packed sand and amazing views. Take a slow beach stroll, and walk through the dying breakers. Bring a towel to dry your feet and wipe away the sand. After the beach, drop by the little tourist town. It is an upper class beach town with... More

Cannon Beach is another one of those unique beach towns in Oregon. You have to exit off of US 101 to get into town. When you do, you will find a quaint tourist town with a beautiful beach and amazing ocean views. There are lots of attractions and many excellent restaurants. It is definitely worth the detour to stop and... More

I've been to quite a few beaches in quite a few countries, but none of them took my breath away like my first view of Cannon Beach. I walked down the road toward the beach and even before I cleared the rise I could hear the pounding surf. Then it was as if I walked into a dream where everything... More

This must be the most photographed place on the Oregon Coast, and deservedly so. Only 1.5 hours from Portland (except on summer weekends), it's well worth a visit.

This is a great little town and you should definitely go here. Among other things, we did not see one chain store or business. Everything we saw was a family owned unique business and that is rare enough these days. Spend time strolling through the shops and then make sure you see Haystack Rock. We were delighted to see this... More

I know what did i expect....but just because it's a tourist town why must they raise the prices sooo much, plus in my opinion there were too many galleries. Beach was very nice to walk along.

clean, pretty, tasteful little coast town - upscale without being pretentious - obviously lots of business in high season to support so many galleries, a theater, bistros, motels/inns not tacky touristy like most coast towns the coast is lovely we decided to have our family reunion nearby next summer
