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

Yes, believe it or not vehicles used to use this as a way to travel to the beach. It's a smaller, secluded beach area with good restrooms, driftwood and a sandy beach. There are parking places as you walk down to the beach area but they can fill up on a spectacular sunny day. My one frustration comes from the... More

We were told about this by our waiter at a restaurant in Cannon beach. When we got there early morning about 7am on a Wednesday it was just us and a family of 3 who had pulled up minutes before us. We climbed down onto the beach and I turned a corner and saw a breathtaking waterfall flowing onto the... More

The beach access is located just off 101 with a short walk down to the shore. It is a gorgeous beach with rocks, caves and a waterfall! We lucked out with a wonderful day of good weather despite it being January, and enjoyed hiking up and down the beach. Well worth the stop.

How's that for a title!? My wife and I visit Hug Point any time we're at the coast. Doesn't matter what the weather is like, we have a great time searching for 'treasures' on the beach and just taking in the view. That's the thing with the Oregon Coast - every where you go is more beautiful than the last... More

Steep access to the beach so be careful. Go at low tide to get around the point for more exploring, just keep an eye on the returning tide..... or get wet!!!!!!!!!!!

We actually arrived after low tide, and the water was coming in. Still, we managed to walk the area, see some of the caves, and get quite wet as the water kept coming in. Absolutely amazing, seeing what low tide uncovers, and realizing what it covers up again - twice each day. We liked this area as it was semi-private,... More

Hug Point is quite a find. Go at low tide to see the waterfalls and caves. Great surf, stunning scenery. Steps down to the beach can be tricky and watch out for sneaker-waves - yes - even at low tide! Beautiful rock formations, shallow caves to explore, but hang onto your small children and pets going around some of the... More
