Nice clean sandy beaches ... amazing views no matter which direction you look. Dislike that dogs can run on the beaches without leashes.

Always make this trip when in PDX. Great place to walk on the beach. Perfect place for families and always bring the dogs. Fantastic views of Haystack rock too

We traveled through the wine country (Newberg at one end and McMinnville at the other) .... awesome. Then we headed to coast, which we were basically pleased with. But Cannon Beach is on a whole different level. Town is super. Restaurants galore. But the prize is the beach - especially the one next to Haystack Rock. I would say an... More

Canon Beach and Haystack rock are just about my favorite place in the whole wide world. To examine the sorts of marine life that become visible during low tide just between shore and the rock put any aquarium to shame. You can surf when the conditions are right, though some might find the waters a little frigid. Great food is... More

Cannon Beach is a fun place to visit. Lots of restaurants to choose from as well as shops. Get there early to find a parking spot along the main road. Be sure to see Haystack Rock.

If you come to Oregon, make sure you visit Cannon Beach. If you have been to Big Sur, this is a close second. With its rock outcroppings and its expansive beach area, it is something to see. Great shops and restaurants for all to enjoy! We walked along the beach, as the fog rolled in and suddenly the water was... More

Iconic beach with Haystack Rock. We had a nice walk along the beach, the water was also low enough we were able to check out some of the tide pools around Haystack Rock. Even saw some SeaStars. Cannon beach looks like the quintessential west coast beach town. I recommend visiting if you are in the area.

One of my Favorite beaches on the coast. Lots of open areas, even when busy. You can rent bikes to ride out on the sand, Haystack rock of course. Lots of sand, lots of water, Not a crazy busy and crowded as other beaches. Parking is at a premium and can be hard to find.

Cannon Beach is a very nice beach, very clean. The water is very cold, so very few people get in the water. In the summer it may be warm enough to lay out in the sun. However, it is very unlike the warmer climate beaches. Still, a nice place to go.
