Obviously not the "beaches fault" lol but there are much better beaches. A lot of washed up gunk, garbage left behind and lots of bugs on the sand. There were 3, what I assume, locals walking around picking up trash. Oh and the hug point cove is all tagged up so that was lovely..... people are very disrespectful. It's sad.

I had visited Hug Point years ago, but with high tide. I came back on a lower tide to see all the wonderful things this park has to offer. You head to the right after getting down to the beach. You'll find sea caves, a waterfall, and the old wagon road hugging the rocks. Don't expect much from the waterfall unless you go in the spring. One of the sea caves go back quite a ways if one is daring. There is a lot of nooks and crannies to explore. Lots of room to beach walk with a low tide. Ample parking as long as it doesn't get too busy. Hug Point is a must stop in the Cannon Beach area.

Very few people at this beach in the mornings when we went. Neat little sea caves to explore when the tide is out. There were a few areas that looked like the cliffs were eroding. The waterfalls were unique to see, so close to the ocean. Highly recommend this hidden gem! No parking fees. Go early to avoid the crowds!

Great little beach area very near Cannon Beach’s Haystack Rock area, very much worth a stop! There’s a lovely waterfall on the beach. It was a small trickle when I visited but apparently gets quite large when there’s enough water!

The parking was free when we visited, not sure if you normally have to pay. It’s a paved lot on a fairly steep hill and is pretty busy. But we didn’t have to wait long for a spot. There’s also a bathroom in the parking area.

After parking, it’s a small hike down to the beach. The beach is clean with soft sand and lots of caves! There were broken sand dollars scattered all over the sand! We even saw a brilliant purple jellyfish! Would be a great spot for a beach day or picnic!

This was by far the most amazing stop we had on the coast. We went at sunset and we definitely were not disappointed. The waterfall is beautiful, we saw jellyfish, we flew a kite. Absolutely stunning. Our only regret was not going back before we left.

My family and I visited this on our last full day in Cannon Beach, and I am so glad we made the time! It is less populous than around Haystack Rock, and offers caves and rock piles and formations to explore. There is a small waterfalls to, around a bend! Might have to wait for parking. Bathrooms were available about halfway up the parking lot.

Wonderful trail to Hug Point to see the stagecoach ruts carved into the rock. Loved the walk past a little waterfall and sea caves. Highly recommend for both the beauty and the history!

Enjoyed our time at Hug Point State Park. Clean bathrooms. Nice parking area. Short walk to the beach. We were able to get my 82 yo MIL to the beach for a wedding. Great area for pictures with the bare rocks and beach.

Decided to check out the location, and fortunate enough to catch it at low tide which was a bonus all around to explore more of the beach. The area was absolutely beautiful, calming, and plenty to see. The walk did stretch a bit out but completely worth it for site seeing. Also learned that Arcadia and Hug Point are attached to the same walk as well as hay stack rock if you are willing to make the walk on low tide.

Make time to see this at least once. I've been over 30 times and will go back each time were in the area. A few hints: MAKE SURE TO GO AT LOW TIDE... you need the water out to get to the caves and water fall area... IMPORTANT: to get to the hard beach area you have to cross about 30' of large gravel type rocks take it slow and once on the beach go to the right (North) and walk around the rock crop to get to the waterfall then keep walking North around the next crop for more to see... my parents are in there 70's and still go down but its getting scary due to the first rocky section. Again if you can make the time it really is something new that you don't see on the Oregon coast very often
