“The perfect place to unwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

There is ample parking and an easy walk to the beach. There's a comfy bench to sit on and watch the waves and it's very peaceful and relaxing to spend an hour or so there.

“Great stopping point- esp low tide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

If you can get there at low tide you can explore the waterfalls. It's a small, usually very quiet beach. If you're lucky you can find artifacts such as stones used to start fires.

“A MUST stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

If you are travelling down the Oregon Coast a stop at Hug Point Park is a must. My wife and I have been travelling down the Oregon Coast for years. There are endless beautiful beaches on the Oregon Coast but this is my favorite. Try and arrange to go when the tide is out. There are sea caves, tidal pools, hared sand, soft sand, even a waterfall last time we were there. The parking lot is right at there beach so no hiking is required. No fee parking and bathrooms are there. We usually go in mid September, usually in shorts & T-shirts. Photos in the early morning or dusk are outstanding. Next time we go, I'm packing a lunch!

“Beautiful Park with easy access to the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a gem of a park with cliffs, caves and tide pools all along a beautiful sandy beach. The day we arrived a group of photographers from Portland were doing a photo-shoot with nautically attired models which the kids enjoyed a great deal. The scenery is more striking and much less developed (it is a park after all) than Cannon Beach. Great choice for kids.
