Very nice beach, wagon wheel tracks are cool! A bit of an incline to get back to your car and bathrooms were closed so only choir was the nasty outhouse. Needless to say, I waited!

My girlfriend at the time (1970) and I came down here for an afternoon of walking the beach and talking of what was to come. A tremendous beach, some great rock formations, a beautiful sunset. Well, it's 2014 and my wife of over 40 years, and myself, still like Hug Point. Come see it, especially when the sun is going... More

We had a little time to kill and decided to stop - so glad we did! Free parking, a small waterfall, cool caves to explore ... The views are great and we spent just under an hour. Glad we made the time!

We always make a stop here when driving the coast. The kids love climbing up in the cave. There is a parking lot and steps down to the beach, not too many though.

We stopped here while staying in Cannon Beach. The caves were so neat to see and walk into. There is a waterfall as well. This is a great beach to just walk and enjoy the coast.

Try to go at low tide. From the parking lot, take a right on the beach and around the corner is a great little waterfall. Very picturesque.

If you have time to walk just on beach, this is it. Try to arrive at low tide and explore the caves.

This beach is isolated on the rocky coast. It is very picturesque and easy to walk. Can't beat the scenery.

Get a tide table and visit about an hour before low tide for time to explore caves and waterfalls, not accessible when the tides are in

Not a huge beach but really nice and an easy walk. You can walk around one of the points and access even more beach
