This has all the things...free parking, restrooms and immediate beach access. We walked all the way up to Haystack Rock, then had a small picnic and walked back. A nice stop for an hour or more AND you can bike the beach!

Lovely place to start a beach walk into town - don't worry, you can catch the regularly-scheduled bus back. You may even see some of the ubiquitous Cannon Beach rabbits on the grassy areas!
