This park is very different than the beach at Haystack Rock or Ecola State Park. There are many caves made by the water. At low tide it was fun to see the tide pools with all the sea life.

I like the hike to the left of the staircase facing the ocean. Go around the point at the far end of the beach to your left, and visit the small beach community of Arch Cape. Caves galore along the cliffs- soft sand, running in the surf. We spent a couple of hours exploring- and found some good driftwood for... More

Hug point has a great beach and stellar views. The picturesque setting just screams for a "no filter" hashtag. Make sure to check the tide charts before your visit so you can walk around the point on the beach to the waterfall and caves.

Waterfalls and beachs and sea caves--doesn't get much better than this. It's a short hike down to the beach, and then north to the waterfall. Lots of sea caves, and the old road around the point is exposed at low tide. Be sure to go at low tide, though....otherwise you won't be able to access most of the beach.

The unusual rock formations and caves, and of course the waterfall found along Hug Point State Park beach are among the most beautiful and interesting on the Oregon Coast.

This is one of the most beautiful areas I have been to. We were there in the morning hour around 9:00 - 10:00 and there was no one on the beach. Magnificent is all I can say. Just make sure you are aware of the high and low tides so you do not get stranded! Highly recommend stopping here if... More

You read about places and things to see and then you actually get to see these things in person. That's how we felt about Hug Point.....there really is a waterfall and there are alcoves and caves in the surrounding cliffs carved out by the ocean!!!! Amazing!!!! The waterfall comes from Fall Creek and cascades over rocks from about 15-18 feet... More

Went there twice to get some photos. Each day we went between 8 and 9 in the morning and there was only 2 cars in the parking area so it was great for photos. I'm sure in the summer, it fills up sooner. If you google this place, you'll find some nice images of a waterfall. However, there wasn't a... More

Easy parking without day use fee and clean restrooms. Beach access is close to some great cave like formations.
