A pair of bald eagles nest there with the amazing views

Short walk to the beach from parking. Some large rocks and driftwood. Lots of rock formations and caves. Not very busy and good place to explore.

If the tide is low enough explore both sides. To the north side there is a beautiful waterfall and more to see.

Our GPS led us a bit astray so you'll have to be on the lookout for the driveway towards the beach. Parking can get difficult in the summer, had to wait for a spot but it's worth it. This is another great beach for families. A short walk off to the side, you'll see the "waterfalls" (which might not get... More

Wonderful walk on the beach with a charming waterfall and many small caves. Secluded location- just be sure to check the tide charts first as the tide comes in fast.

This is a great beach for both children and adults, especially at low tide. Here there are caves, a waterfall, sea stacks and tide pools. The beach is just 50 yards away from the spacious parking lot.

Located directly off Hway 101, parking is free and a small stair will take you down to a wide beach suitable for children, animals and adults. The stairs would make wheelchair access doubtful. Easily a place to picnic, fly a kite or simply gaze out across the surf at the ocean.

This beach is gorgeous at sunrise/sunset, especially if you go at low tide and can check out the sea caves and cliffside around hug point (that used to be the old roadway)!

Be sure to go at low tide so you can walk around the rocks to the north... beautiful caves and waterfalls await!

We went in October so it wasn't busy. There were jelly fish that had been beached from the tide all over the place. An excellent place to find sand dollars, they were all over.

What a great 'hidden gem' on the Oregon Coast. This beach is located just south of Cannon Beach. I found out recently that there is a waterfall that spills onto the beach. You have to watch the tide tables and go right before or at low tide as you have to walk around the point to get to the waterfall... More
