Steep access to the beach so be careful. Go at low tide to get around the point for more exploring, just keep an eye on the returning tide..... or get wet!!!!!!!!!!!

We actually arrived after low tide, and the water was coming in. Still, we managed to walk the area, see some of the caves, and get quite wet as the water kept coming in. Absolutely amazing, seeing what low tide uncovers, and realizing what it covers up again - twice each day. We liked this area as it was semi-private,... More

Hug Point is quite a find. Go at low tide to see the waterfalls and caves. Great surf, stunning scenery. Steps down to the beach can be tricky and watch out for sneaker-waves - yes - even at low tide! Beautiful rock formations, shallow caves to explore, but hang onto your small children and pets going around some of the... More

Hug Point is scenic and a nice spot to pause a bit and absorb the natural beauty of the Oregon coast. Sunset is especially nice when cloud cover is minimal, and oh yeah, bring a loved one to hug. Be careful and watch for traffic as you pull back out onto the highway.

This is such a beautiful spot! My boyfriend and I hiked over to the waterfall area on a super windy, stormy day. It was magical!

We were told about this place by some locals. We went there in late June of 2014 and spent a couple of hours exploring. The sea life was amazing and the caves were so interesting. My daughter who was 4 at the time loved looking at all the star fish and interesting shells. She still talks about it to this... More

We call it hidden beach. It is very unique. There is a cave you can walk to in low tide, perfect spot for a picture. There have been times we were the only ones there. You have to be watching for the entrance/sign just south of Cannon Beach.

Easy access to a lovely beach area. There is a sea cave that makes for an interesting landscape. Took some very pretty beach pictures here. Has a nice sand area to lay out. Highly recommend seeing this beach area.

I'd seen pictures of the waterfall beside the cave and was hesitant walking to the caves thinking it wasn't very glamorous. It was an easy walk and because it had been raining off and on for days the waterfall was flowing so much more than expected. Tide was coming in so we had to make a quick sneak peek around... More
