It's off the side of the road with parking just short of the beach. A wonderful beach to stroll and look for shells. At low tide you can go around the corner of the rock outcropping to a secluded area. Just keep an eye on the incoming tide as you can become trapped from the main beach.

Lovely beach, with plenty of room for everyone at low tide. Everyone seemed to know when to visit as the small car park was nearly full when we arrived. As others have noted, at low tide you can explore little caves and tide pools and marvel at all the mussels, limpets, barnacles etc. At high tide, there would be a... More

Don't skip this park when you're in the area, its beautiful. Head left/north when you hit the beach, the views around the corner are great.

We stopped by, and there was no place to park. We came back later, and there were a few parking spots. I would suggest getting there early morning or late afternoon so you can get a parking spot. We ate lunch on one of the logs. Nice and relaxing. It is a cute little beach.

Great spot for everyone. Lovely beach flanked by huge rocky cliffs. It was a fun and easy walk around the rocks to hidden caves, a waterfall, another sandy beach, and awesome views. Great place to take a picnic and hangout. Something different than the other beaches in the area and less crowded than haystack rock.

We stayed in Cannon Beach the night before and came to Hug Point after to explore. We spent hours looking in the tide pools and caves. It is a beautiful beach! I'm so glad we stopped. My favorite place on the coast so far.

Everyone stops at Cannon Beach, but Hug Point (in my opinion) is a better choice. Way more opportunities. Tide pools galore. Sea caves. It's got it all. Go at low tide to experience the best of Hug Point!

We discovered Hug Point State Park at the last minute and added it to our list of places to see during our vacation. It was definitely the best part of our day. We went at low tide and got to explore the sea caves. It is awesome to see a waterfall on the beach. All of this within 0.5 miles... More

Came here on the 4th of July and it is such a great little beach spot. It was fun to walk around the caves and discover the little parts in and around this beach. We had a fire on the beach and enjoyed other people setting off their fireworks a few beaches over. Will definitely be coming here again.

Found this beach just south of Arcadia Beach. It is a fairly short beach ringed by hills. The rock formations are pretty awesome and if you arrive early enough there is a small sand level alcove that you can stake out to spend the day in. A great place for a family picnic.
