Great hidden gem

What a great place Cannon Beach is for a romantic weekend getaway. Best kept local secret! Only 80 miles from Portland, but feels like a whole other world.

Spent a few days at this beach and despite the unrelenting rain it was spectacular and we were able to still go for a walk with our gumboots & wet weather gear! Summer would be great but the no crowds makes it very appealing!

Wow. Went on a cold and cloudy day and it was amazing. The rocks were partially shrouded in mist and we walked the beach which was amazing. Amazing scenery. Definitely visit if you have the chance.

Fairly typical American tourist town. Lots of local restaurants surrounded by gift shops. I preferred the outer edges of town and in particular the Sea Level Cafe.

If you like to walk, this is a great place to get lost on the beach! Listen to the crashing waves! Beautiful sunset one evening. Also enjoyed walking in the rain!

Beautiful beach - great for long walks. Haystock Rock is beautiful. We loved watching the birds during high tide and walking out to explore the tide pools during low tide. Plus great hiking in the parks nearby. It's the best of beach town and mountain hiking rolled into one.

Cannon Beach is a small Oregon coast town that has grown more 'touristy' over the years. It has a few restaurants, the Ecola State Park and public parking on the main street through Cannon Beach, Hemlock. Great beach access but not much to do there. If you like to window shop, there are a few knick knack shops and a... More

Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock reminded me of Reynisfjara Beach and Reynisdrangar in the south coast of Iceland. The black sand and the rocks in the ocean are magnificent. Since we went in winter it was windy and cold but was still totally worth the visit. I can imagine that this is a beautiful place to hang out in the... More

Cannon Beach - ive been vacationing in Cannon Beach since I was a teenager. Im 53 now and still in love with her. Such a quaint little town with many ageless shops and places to hang out. The candy shop, Driftwood Restaurant, the Bakery, the Kite shop...you name it. Nothing compares to the monolith Haystack Rock and the glorious Oregon... More

This beach is so scenic with Haystack Rock on one side & Ecola State Park on the other side. Lots of people even in Feb but expansive beach accommodates everyone. Our dog also had a great time running around. The town itself is lovely & charming with plenty of eateries & shopping. Just a great place to visit. Don't miss... More
