Hug Point has it all... sea caves, a waterfall, tide pools, a sandy beach, wind-swept trees on the cliffs and the ruts from the stage coaches that once "hugged" the cliff. We went at low tide and really enjoyed exploring it all.

This place is an explorer's dream at low tide. There are so many things to see and do, better than a trip to the aquarium. Just be nice to the sea creatures.

A lovely place to spend an afternoon playing on the beach, exploring caves, interacting with the people and animals and just enjoying life. Such a great spot to enjoy nature and the amazing Pacific Coast.

Hug point is beautiful! Live the waterfall and the rocks on the beach! During low tide you can walk around the point and see the ruts from the wagon wheels which is so awesome! Great tide pools for spiriting sea life and tons of sand dollars. Worth the stop! The weekends get very busy and parking can be a little... More

This was a great beach to explore. There are caves and a tiny waterfall. Beautiful rock walls. Go at low tide or prepare to get wet.

We stopped on the way back to Seaside from a short hike further south down the coast earlier this morning. It's a quick stroll down to the beach. When the tide is low, you can walk around and explore some small sea caves. There's a teeny tiny waterfall, if you can call it that. It probably flows heavier after rain,... More

It was 8:30 in the morning when I passed this small sign on the highway from Cannon Beach to Tellemook, turned around and found the most serene, picturesque beach on the entire coast. It was Hug Point. There was no one there except for a guy camping with his dog at the base of the bluff. The lifting mist, the... More

Nice little water fall, interesting rock formations and coloration, perfect for those of us who appreciate beaches that are not just endless, broad strips of featureless sand.

Located 4 miles south of Cannon Beach it's an uncrowded beach - perfect for a quiet walk or a picnic - byo firewood! At low tide there is access to a tiny waterfall, where I saw people take their dogs for a fresh drink of water. It also sports some interesting geological rock formations and small caves.

This is a really different place to visit. The walk down to the beach is a little treacherous, but just around the next cove is a small waterfall right at the beach! When the tide is out you won't get wet going there.
