Spent almost two hours walking the beach nearby. Every care I ever had was blissfully gone! It was magical!
We love this place and come back regularly. The beach, the rock, the tidepools; all are great for a family or couple. The sunset when we were there in October was the most beautiful and surreal I've ever experienced as we were on the beach and the colors were reflected in the water at our feet.

Huge rock populated with breeding seabirds. like puffins and cormorans. Raiding eagles poach on the nestlings, creating loud havoc. Orange and purple sea anemonies on the rocks below. Great for tide pooling with the family
Love the tidal pools - always plenty of sea life to see and explore. Beautiful little town - very quaint and just a place to really relax.
If Haystack was not on Cannon Beach, I wouldn't live in Cannon Beach. Next to Haystack is a plethora of tide pools witch are great to explore. I personally don't have anything against Haystack Rock.
If you get a chance to hear a presentation or talk to one of the people at the education truck on the beach, you'll find out how many species of birds nest on the rock, and if you're lucky you'll see a nesting puffin - really - colored beak and all - very cool
It's cool - yes. It's fun to look at and take pictures of, but that's about it. There really isn't anything else to do and it tends to be cold and windy which makes it not that fun. You should see it, but plan to spend 10 minutes & move on.
