We were torn between visiting Cannon Beach or Seaside. But 3 people (locals) recommended Cannon Beach, as it was more laid-back and less touristy. And it turned out to be everything they said it would be. Friendly, with quaint shops, and a fantastic beach with great scenery and peacefulness....all for free! As we strolled through the town and walked along... More

The front desk staff recommended this beach as one of the nicer beaches in the area. The day we went there were "sneaker waves" and it was recommended that you stay out of the water. So although we didn't get to swim, we had a good time walking the beach. Also, Haystack Rock (The Goonies) is located here.

Walk the beach, check out the iconic rocks. Get a tide chart and find some time to walk out at low tide to see all the critters exposed.

Cannon Beach has many wonderful art galleries and great restaurants and pubs. What we liked a lot was the lack of chain businesses, whether art or food it was local and unique.

This is a very, very popular destination, but still a nice place to visit. The beach is large and you and your family are able to spread out a little bit. Kite flying, storm watching, beach strolling and sunset watching are the favorite activities people enjoy here. Lots of restaurants to enjoy also.

Amazing views and spectacular close up encounter with Haystack. The beach is quintessential Pacific Coast. Bleached driftwood, evening bonfires, golden sunsets.

Fun to go in the slow season, get a good hotel/motel on the beach with ocean side room. Better if it has a gas fire place. Lots of shops in town, easy drive to Seaside, Astoria or Tillamook. We go in slow season and take advantage of 3 for 2 pricing. Fun to watch and listen to ocean and breakers... More

I wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful sands, lots of people enjoying the long holiday weekend. The views were breath-taking. I couldn't believe that in the time we were there, how quickly the views could change. The "mist" rolled in & felt like we were going to be lost..... I couldn't have been happier to experience the natural beauty... More

Stopped on our way to Astoria from the wine country and had a great time walking the beach - beautiful views of Haystack rock and grab a pint at the local hardware store!

We actually stayed in Arch Cape, just a few minutes drive to Cannon Beach. We visited other beach communities nearby and have to say that the other beach towns did not match the charm and character of Cannon Beach. Shopping, restaurants, etc. all great in this quaint community.
