Great expansive beach

Lots to see and do. Very senic. Parking is hit or miss. Luckily we had a hit. Short walk to the beach.

The beach was absolutely outstanding and extremely wide when heading to the ocean. It was still chilly with the ocean breeze, so bring a long sleeve shirt just in case. My concern was the lack of parking to reach the beach. If there were public lots, the signage was poorly located. We ended up several blocks from an entry point...no... More

Our trip to the Oregon Coast had us visiting several beaches but one of our favorites was Cannon Beach.It was beautiful, the beaches were clean and the view was amazing.The shops downtown were beautiful and there were lots of variety in food or places to eat.

we enjoyed the nice houses, shops, and restaurants around the city center. What was strange, the shops close early, so hardly any shopping after dinner.

Cannon beach was so beautiful. The city very relaxing and the coastline - breathtaking. The town is full of flowers, beautiful gardens and lots of bunnies. I would highly recommend for a getaway or include in a trip to Oregon

A nice beach to enjoy for the day or night. Many shops and restaurants are nearby. Many photoragraphic opportunities. Not very crowded in August during the week, so I was surprised. A real gem in Oregon and close to national parks and not too far from Portland. We had the evening mist and fog, yet it was still nice. Bring... More

So many people but it's such a big beach, It didn't really matter. The birds were annoying but oh well and the tide was really low when I was here and I found a bunch of sand dollars-- all of them were broken :(

We walked from our hotel at Wayside to the base of the rock. It was around 9:00AM. Tide pools were exposed. We saw anemones, star fish and hermit crabs. There were lots of birds.

We wanted to visit & stay along the Ore coast & researched a number of towns I the upper northern half of the coast, in close proximity to Portland. We had a car. We really lucked out picking CB as it was accessible to great state parks both to the south & north, offered quaint shopping & dining, & was... More

Lovely town in a truly beautiful part of the world...endless sandy beaches and stunning views, but to anyone from a warm part of the world it is unbelievable how freezing cold the water is! Wetsuits including helmets and boots seem mandatory for surfing even in August. Still, even though we didn't go in the water, this has been a memorable... More
