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.

We went to Hug Point while vacationing in the area. It is a beautiful spacious beach. There is a fair amount of parking but sometimes it is not sufficient. A short walk of around a hundred yards (give or take 30 yards depending on where you get to park) is required to get to the beach. There are also some... More

Fantastic secluded beach. Great for windy days – it is ‘hugged’ by cliffs on both sides. Busy on weekends for surfers – easier surf beach, many women and teens prefer this to ‘large open sea’ beaches with rough seas. Easy walk, about 100 yards from parking lot to sand in beautiful rain forest (far if you have to carry children... More

Lovely, glad we stopped, we got a parking spot but at certain times it might be difficult. Worth the climb down and back up. It really isn't a hike but to me it was.

My family and I rented a house in Seaside and visited a different beach each day. After reading reviews, we decided to come here and we were so happy we did! The reviews we read lead us to believe it would be hard to find but that was not the case; the park is clearly marked with signs off 101,... More

This was a great spot that we wouldn't have found on our own. Friends dragged us down to this spot... and even then I wasn't too impressed... then they walked us a short distance down the beach to ... Wow.. .caves and waterfall... short hike up stream was pretty cool... You have to go when the tide is low... and... More
