Worth a stop to view the waterfalls, walk the short distance over the stage coach trail, go into the caves....really fun beach. Missed this one at low tide but still loved it.

We stopped by on our drive south and were fortunate to catch the place at low tide - very few people down on the beach at all. We were able to explore the caves, play in the little waterfall, do some beach combing, and thoroughly enjoy the views. What a great little gem this place is - wish we had... More

Hug Point came highly recommended by some co-workers and we were not disappointed at all. We had some family visiting for the first time to Oregon and took them to Hug Point during the morning low tide.. It was amazing with all the beautiful sea life in the tide pools, there are caves as well as a few water falls.... More

Make sure to go at low tide so you can see all the different things here. Sea caves, small waterfall, tide pools and the road blasted out of the rock that was used to go from beach to beach before US 101 was built.

Man alive this place was fantastic. A visit during low tide is a must. Went down with the family and saw the caves, waterfall and the most fantastic beaches. Best of all there were barely any people there unlike Haystack rock. Lots of tidal pool play for the kids too. Flush toilets were also available in the parking lot which... More

Hug Point is a short drive from Cannon Beach, free parking and admission to the beach. The parking lot has public restrooms too. Make sure you bring decent water shoes (not flip flops) for walking on the rocks down to the beach area, some of the granite stones are sharp/slippery. The beach is pristine and beautiful, perfect for walking. Make... More

We were not overly impressed with this stop. With so many beautiful coastline parks, this was only average in interest.

Wonderful place to stop and explore. Moderate walk down to the beach. Great place for playing in the sand and ocean. At low tide you can see where a road was blasted out of the rock back when the Model T was popular.

This area has the beach, lots of caves, and a waterfall. Great stop off to take the kids too. Our kids 5 and 8 played for a bit. There were lots of other kids and families there. There is a short walk to a secluded beach.
