What a fun beach. The tide was out, so we were able to explore the beach and go inside the cave. Fun beach for kids.

I walked to this small waterfall at low-tide. It was fun to see, but I only took a few pictures and then left to continue up the coast. It's not a real big waterfall and certainly nothing like what you find in the Columbia Gorge, but it's fun to see anyway.

Great place for exploration during low tide. Rock formations with small cave inlets as well as a fresh water waterfall feeding into Pacific. A must see stop.

I'm in love with this beach! I can only imagine how beautiful is when the sun is actually out. Lots of boulders, caves and rock formations on the beach. One shallow cave you can even have a small group under if you get there soon enough to get it. It's not just a great place to get some sun or... More

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
