Hug Point is a MUST when visiting coastal Oregon! The beach is beautiful and loads of fun to explore. At low tide, one can observe a large variety of sea anemones, starfish, and other sea life in the tide pools. There are beautiful, wind whipped cliffs and large rock formations, as well as caves to explore. We even found a... More

We visited Hug Point State Park for the first time this past weekend. It's beautiful! And so much to explore! We were staying in Seaside, but a cold wind had picked up so it was really chilly out on the Seaside beach. We decided to drive down to Hug Point, which I'd wanted t see for a while now. Plus...

This was one of our favorite stops along the coast- amazing views and the beach is awesome!! At low tide there are caves to explore, tide pools filled with starfish and anemones to marvel at, a really pretty waterfall and miles of sandy beach to walk. When we were there last June, there was some sort of "low budget" Viking... More

Love this place. Easy to get to and not too crowded and protected from the wind in certain spots. Do beware of sneaker waves. We knew the tide was coming in so we were being cautious (so we thought) and our son got trampled on by a wave right up against a rock. He was shaken up (as well as... More

We have been coming to Cannon Beach for years but have never been to this particular location. Wow! We will not miss this spot again. Our girls (14 and 11) loved exploring all of the caves and walking on the "road" around the point. There are many tide pools to explore as well. Make sure you hit this spot during... More

Yes, believe it or not vehicles used to use this as a way to travel to the beach. It's a smaller, secluded beach area with good restrooms, driftwood and a sandy beach. There are parking places as you walk down to the beach area but they can fill up on a spectacular sunny day. My one frustration comes from the... More

We were told about this by our waiter at a restaurant in Cannon beach. When we got there early morning about 7am on a Wednesday it was just us and a family of 3 who had pulled up minutes before us. We climbed down onto the beach and I turned a corner and saw a breathtaking waterfall flowing onto the... More

The beach access is located just off 101 with a short walk down to the shore. It is a gorgeous beach with rocks, caves and a waterfall! We lucked out with a wonderful day of good weather despite it being January, and enjoyed hiking up and down the beach. Well worth the stop.

How's that for a title!? My wife and I visit Hug Point any time we're at the coast. Doesn't matter what the weather is like, we have a great time searching for 'treasures' on the beach and just taking in the view. That's the thing with the Oregon Coast - every where you go is more beautiful than the last... More

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!!!!!!!!!!!
