The views of Haystack Rock are ones to see indeed. If you time the tides just right you are able to walk to them. The beach is beautiful and well kept. I went during the afternoon and the beach wasn't crowded at all. Worth the trip, Cannon Beach is beautiful!

There were a lot of people around. There was a little truck that had lots of info about the area and volunteers willing to give mini tours of the ecology. The view of the mountain changes every few minutes in the evening or if there are clouds around!

The allure of the Oregon Coast in general is a must see. Haystack Rock is one of those marvels you have to see to believe. A really nice beach compliments the surroundings. When you get home, make sure you fire up The Goonies, most likely the first time you heard of it.

Husband and I had a wonderful walk down to Haystack Rock. The tide was high so wasn't able to get too close, we were told when the tide is down you can pretty much walk to it. Lots of Tufted Puffins on the rock that you could see from the distance. Even though lots of people were on the beach,... More

It was unbelievable.. Being from the East Coast, I had never seen anything like it. Loved exploring and seeing the birds/wildlife.

The dominant feature along the beach and tide. At low tide it is a showcase of marine animals and plants in vivid displays and variety. Well worth the walk out when the tide is low. At high tide you get wet.

Great place to hang out and enjoy life. A bit chilly in August but the sand is clean and plenty of wind to fly a kite.

Always a must see at Cannon Beach is Haystack Rock. Even if you have seen it many times before as I have, it seems that people are always drawn back to the rock. The stroll along the beach is well worth it too.
