We enjoyed a pleasant walk along the beach toward Haystack Rock, got up close to the base at low tide, took lots of pictures of Haystack and the surrounding scenery. I'm hoping to quilt a small wallhanging from one or two of our pictures to make a momento of our trip.

Impressive! We're here for a week and have visited Haystack Rock everyday. Just a lovely stroll on the beach with the dogs. Lots of shops nearby and restaurants. When the tide is out, you can walk out to the rock. Worth a visit, definitely.

Check with locals for low tide time. When it's low you can walk out to the rock which is surrounded by tide pools. Kids loved checking out the sea life and found 4 seastars.

Lots of lovely rocks on the Oregon coast, but this one definitely has the best PR agent. I don't think I would enjoy it in the summer when it is crowded, but when we went, it was great. You can walk around the edges of the tidal pools and see anemones, mussels, etc.

Impressive natural rock formation on the north end of Cannon Beach. Apparently can be scaled in the right weather, like low wind. Very wide easy to walk sandy beach and quaint little town with nice boutiques and variety of very nice restaurants.

Haystack Rock and the surrounding area is very impressive. It has great tide pools, lots of birds, and is just fun to look at.

Best at low tide, but impressive at any tide! This natural phenomenon is very photogenic. The beach is so nice to walk, that you will enjoy your everything about this location.
