A beach with some "teeth": best bet for board and kayak surfers.
One of the most iconic beaches on the Oregon Coast, Canon Beach is one of those places you feel is an essential visit whenever a friend comes into town. When the tide is out you can walk right up to a number of the boulders and watch the bald eagles hunting and flying around them. You can also explore the starfish filled rock pools at their base. Spectacular.
Gorgeous and pretty typical west coast beach... in other words, it rains a lot so come prepared. If you love Goonies (and of course you do) you'll also want to snap some pics! On a sunny warm day it's also a great place for a picnic. But as Tatiana pointed out there aren't a lot of trash cans so clean up after yourself!
Beautiful place to visit, even on a rainy day. Needs more trash receptacles however. The sand is incredibly soft. Free parking and the tide pools are so much fun to explore, and you might even find a starfish. I could easily spend all day relaxing here.
Its just a rock! I love it.
Easily the most beautiful beach on the Oregon coast! When the tide is low, there are plenty of tide pools you can explore and take pictures of. During low tide you can usually walk out to Haystack Rock (or pretty close to it).
Cannon beach is beautiful! Must stop if driving the coast.
This is one of my favorite films of all time!!! :)
Rangers are often situated right in front of rock with binoculars and telescopes to help you see the amazing puffins who come to the rock to lay eggs and raise their young before returning to the ocean life!
"Brimming with art galleries, shingled storefronts and charming mom-and-pop restaurants, Cannon Beach has become one of Oregon’s must-see beach towns. And thanks to the area’s abundance of natural scenery, you won’t have to shell out your savings to keep busy. Hit the more than five miles of sand between Ecola Creek and Arch Cape for unbeatable views of Haystack Rock, one of the state’s most recognizable landmarks, or bike the 16-mile trail to Manzanita, stopping to take in dramatic coastal views in Oswald West State Park. After, grab a broiled shrimp sandwich and a slice of apple walnut cake from Lazy Susan Café, then check out the town’s buzzy art scene at White Bird Gallery, the oldest fine arts gallery in the area. After a long day of exploring, rest your head at The Ocean Lodge, an affordable family-friendly resort with 45 water-facing rooms, a free continental breakfast, and a cozy library stocked with books and movies."
We stopped for a picnic and some pics; kids had s great time sword playing. Day was overcast but sun came out after all. There were no facilities, not much parking to speak of; we ended up at end of narrow road and walk to beach was not far. Fine sanded beach w few rocks (other than the iconic rocks great4 pics).
