We stopped here while on a bus trip from our cruise operator. The views are amazing of the rock formations and the beautiful beach. It can be very windy, but well worth a stop to see it.

I don't know what I can add! It's beautiful. The tidal pools around the rock have beautiful starfish at low tide. Lots of birds, dogs, people. There is no place like it!

Smooth beaches for walking and beach combing. Many shops with local art work. Wish to visit more often.

We made the short walk from the parking area through the beach to Haystack Rock.Interesting array of people and their dogs all having a good time. We weren't there for low tide, so we did not get up close to see the sea life in the tidal pools. Next time . . .

While we ate at the Wayfarer, we observed this huge rock. After lunch we walked on the beach to get closer. It is quite a site to see.

We walked down the beach to get a better look, it is as big and impressive as it looks! Tide was low, so people were able to walk around the base and if they were brave enough, walk in the cave!

We arrived on Cannon Beach on a rainy day. Even in the rain and driving wind, this landmark doesn't disappoint. It was spectacular.

Loved seeing the rock and walking around it in low-tide. Had fun looking at all the sea-life that are in the tide-pools around the big rock.

Haystack Rock is majestic in itself but so interesting to walk up close when the tide is out and see all the sea creatures in the pools.
