Cannon Beach is such a cute beach town comparable to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. The beach is very wide and a great place to allow kids to play in the sand without worrying about the water. The weather is on the chillier side,...More

Good length of beach to be on. Great views of Haystack rock and the other rocks like it. There is a good parking lot at the south end of Cannon Beach (the town).

This place is a very beautiful place to visit. The people are friendly and the town offers everything you need. The sand is so soft and very tiring to walk unless you're in decent shape. Worth every step.

Cannon Beach is phantastic: long and wide, so not crowded and great for a walk. The big rocks in the sea add to the beauty of the place. So do the tidal pools where you can watch starfish, crabs and small fishes. Plenty of parking...More

Literally miles (3 or 4?) of white sand beach. Perfect for walking on barefoot. The sand is so fine that it squeaks when you walk on it. It is clean, lots of seabirds (gulls, cormorants, pelicans), and beautiful skies. The water is cold, but we...More

This part of Oregon's Coast is breathtaking. We so much enjoyed just walking, taking in the views and relaxing here.
