Enjoyed the tidal pools at low tide. Kids enjoyed exploring the caves. Small parking lot limits number of visitors to this location. The gulls were catching crabs and eating them on the beach. Great place for nature discovery.

A great place for families and couples to enjoy the beach. A small waterfall and stream, several caves, cliffs and a huge variety a plant life make this part of the Oregon shore really entertaining for all. Get there early as parking is limited

This is an amazing beach to explore. Caves to crawl in, rocks to climb, breathtaking. Make sure you go at low tide to get the full experience.

An easy walk to a beach with cliffs and caves. It's interesting and beautiful and you don't need to commit that much time to seeing it. I would definitely recommend the stop.

A pretty hike along the beach at low tide, with great views of the coast and ocean. Stay to the right to Hug point. You can see the ruts from all of the wagons that traversed this narrow point bringing supplies up and down the coast. Not an easy ride for sure! Numerous tide pools among the rocks with anemones...

Look up the tide schedule and go at low tide to get around the point and be able to have the best views. Limited parking so go a little early and be patient. You may have to park on the HWY

This beach is not as crowded as Cannon Beach. It has caves to explore. The tide come in quickly so watch your belongings.

You can walk along this rock and see where the stagecoach wheels went! There are caves to explore (take a light!) and hidden beaches to walk.

We took a recommendation to drive south of Cannon Beach and visit here. It was well worth it! A large beach with fewer people than over at Haystack Rock but a few neat tide pools, a small waterfall and some really neat caves. Great beach to hike on!

Great beach with great views! A must see when at cannon beach, it it surrounded by huge tall wind blown trees! And is fun to collect small shells and agates! Have fun! It's windy so bring a kite. And a picnic to enjoy the view!
