Cannon Beach is my favorite beach to visit. There are cute shops and great restaurants. Haystack Rock is a wonderful place to walk out to and explore the tide pools at low tide. There are all kinds of cool creatures if you take your time to observe. It is also a nesting place for many sea birds. I love it!

Love Cannon Beach and have been visiting there for years. We have special places we visit while there. We enjoy it and the weather was great.

Canon beach is very very clean and beautiful. Lot of rocks to explore. The only downfall is there are thousands of people and dogs. Most people are good about picking up after their dog but some are not. It's nasty to walk barefoot on the beach.

I own a second home in Cannon Beach and it is awesome. It is a great community with great restaurants, awesome shops and a truly outstanding beach. I must say, i have been to many beaches in my life including beaches in Thailand, Africa and Europe, and Cannon Beach is still at the top of my list. It is the... More

This is one of our favorite spots on the Oregon Coast - none of the commercial enterprises like big grocery stores, chain coffee establishments, movie theaters, etc - just lots of small shops, a great beach, and really nice proximity to Portland

Beaches and vacation destinations are always a matter of personal taste and experience...for me Cannon Beach is a wonderful, peaceful, calming place where I can recharge. I have been coming here since downtown Cannon Beach was mainly a small merchantile, Bruce's Candy Kitchen and Bill's Tavern. The density of businesses and restaurants now is a bit overwhelming but no one... More

I have visited here regularly. Fog, rain, cloudy, and clear all have different light. Wet and cold, sit by a fire and look at the beauty. Clear, run on the beach and watch the kids play. Foggy, wander and watch fellow travelers emerge from the mist. Easy to get to, everything within walking distance, and a variety of accommodations.

We try to make at least one trip to Cannon Beach each year. It is our favorite spot on the Oregon Coast. We have our traditions like a lot of families do, and always try to do something new also. I never get tired of Haystack Rock, great tide pooling and during certain seasons the birds on Haystack Rock are... More

Great little area, almost everything is within walking distance for most. A tad spendy for most regular items, but that could be expected for such a quaint area. Bring your supplies from home in a small cooler, you'd be surprised what a 6 pack of beer and a jar of mustard goes for.

A must see on the Oregon Coast. So much sea life to explore here - adults and for little learners. An easy day trip from Portland
