What a truly stunning beach with rock pools to explore and a vast expanse of sand to explore. Haystack rock makes a great central hub. Stunning at all times of day and in all weathers.

We have been coming to this beach for years. It is our family favorite. At low tide there is a truck with workers and volunteers who will point out good photo opportunities in the tide pools. They are very knowledgeable and interesting for kids and adults alike.

Yes! Best town and beach ever ever! If you go at Lowtide you can see the starfish and other critters on the rocks. There is somebody out there to stop you from crushing them. So be nice when they say get off the rocks because you're crushing little critters!this is very family-friendly and they can see starfish of many colors.... More

We went to Cannon Beach to see the legendary Goonies beach. We parked at Mo's restaurant is next to a huge parking lot with bathrooms. We walked along the beach which is really wide at low tide and the beach is really hard so you can run and ride most type of bikes. We're from the east coast, so the... More

I like this beach but must say I prefer Indian Beach at Ecola SP. Having said that, the beach is clean, miles long and worth a stroll. Weather can be iffy but that's the same all along the OR coast.

This beach is long and wide. It features Haystack Rock, a main attraction in Cannon Beach. The crashing waves and rugged rock formations are stunning. The beach is active at all times of day with walkers, runners, families building sand castles. At low tide, one can explore the rocky pools at the base of Haystack. We saw anemone and a... More

I have been told that this beach surpasses legions of tropical beaches around the world. I am not sure that is entirely true; but it is a nice beach. It is wide, sandy and stretches for miles (literally). The weather, however, can be pretty cold/misty/cloudy. If that is what you want to escape the heat somewhere, this may be your... More

Stumbled upon Cannon Beach on our drive through to Portland. It was beautiful! We stayed for about an hour. Gorgeous scenery and sunshine. Would recommend this to any beach lovers who want to relax and enjoy the sights.

We were making our way back to Portland from Astoria and took the 10 mile detour to Cannon Beach. It was well worth the stop. We very much enjoyed watching the kites, dogs, and kids enjoy life, and took time to dip our toes into the Pacific. Wish we had had all day!
