Definitely a summer focus for beach lovers. We had one day to drive the Oregon coast and this was one place we chose to stop. Fun to be there and see the "Haystack", walk the beach, check out some of the shopping and do some people watching. The shops were interesting with several that had unique and really special items.
Get there early if you can - parking is free but finding a space is a challenge.
When we were there, the tide was out, the beach wide and beautiful with plenty of room for families to spread out and play. Dogs are welcome (leashed of course).
Book way ahead if you want to stay in Cannon Beach. Most places require at least a two night minimum during the busy season.

The beach was humongous and lots of space to walk with Haystack Rock for some bird watching. Easy access all along the beach with restaurants and downtown shops within a block. Cons: Cold cold ocean and people reserve/poach all the fire pits with their chairs for the night before most people wake up in the morning.

What a beautiful, amazing, beach! The haystacks are just incredible! The beach is well kept and is just one of those places that you have to visit.

there were many many people on the beach, tents for events, kites, recumbent biking, all sorts of activities going on, but still was plenty of room to stroll, look for rocks and seashells. We even found a scattering of small jelly fish waiting for the tide to wash them back into the ocean.

Cannon beach is a very fine place to visit. The views are spectacular, with many rock formations adjacent to the beach. There is a nice park (so many such nice parks along the coast of Oregon) and you can simply take the scenery from above the beach, or wander down and walk the beach. The scene changes with the tides and the weather so you can be pretty much assured of something interesting whenever you visit.

A multiple-day pass can be purchased that is valid for a number of days at any of the coast beaches. This is the way to go if you will be along the coast for several days. Just ask at the first entry at the first beach you visit.
