    Wow! Beach a little crowded but the views! This is a must see. Parking is limited. Short walk to site.

    The Haystack Rockand Cannon Beach are nice, but also the close Stateparks are a visit worth. You can go hiking and exploring plus the beaches are mostly more beautiful (line the Indian Beach).

    This is a pretty big park with a number of entry points. Requires a 5 USD NPS day fee.

    Indian beach is lovely and very popular with surfers. We hiked the Clatsop loop from here, which is 3 miles if you include the short path at the top to view the tiny Tillamook lighthouse. Steady climb up on a wide gravel/stone path. Some interpretive panels en route. You can also hike to Seaside (c6 miles one way) from here.

    We visited Ecola Beach aswell - different part of the park, which is also very nice, and has views from above over to Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock.

    We visited this beach on a rainy day. Walked down the beach, in and out of a few caves, and checked out the small waterfall and many birds in the area. Great for a different beach experience.

    Very much worth a visit. The owner/artists do a great job of explaining things. The glass works available for sale are impressive.

    Can't miss an opportunity to take a picture of a lighthouse! This one you view from land. It is now a abandoned and is a wildlife refuge.

    Tolovano park is in the middle of Cannon Beach and is really the only place where you can see the Sea Stacks that Cannon Beach is known for. Being there in the midst of the COVID pandemic was interesting since there were few people on the beach and it was so much easier to view the Sea Stacks. Those are definitely worth it.

    This play was well worth my trip to Cannon Beach in all respect but one. The acting, blocking, script, and character development made the show very entertaining, however the costume choices in scene after scene were distracting. I would have enjoyed myself much more if the costumer had made more appropriate choices. The Coastal Theatre is always my main reason for coming to Cannon Beach. It never disappoints.

    This is the best small town museum I’ve seen. The exhibits are really well done and there’s great artifacts such as the original cannon that gave the town its name. I learned about the cannon, the shipwreck it was from, the geology of haystack rock, and the history of the town and its past problems with a tsunami and septic problems that drove its incorporation.

    This was a really beautiful view of the coast, and a nice area to walk around and splash in the water. We saw people swimming but the water was frigid so we just got our feet a little wet. If we had more time, this would be a great place to bring beach chairs and just relax.

    While on a one day tour of Oregon’s coast, we stopped in Cannon Beach for lunch. Our group consisted of ten tourists and our guide. . As our time was very limited when we stopped for lunch, I did not have much time to visit shops. In spite of our limited time, I made sure to stop at the White Bird Gallery. I was impressed by the beautiful art works they had on display. On a return visit to Cannon Beach, I would like to stop in and spend a little more time as they had some beautiful art works on display.

    If you like giclee prints, this is the gallery for you. The space itself is very pleasant, and there's an interpretation of Haystack Rock for all aesthetic tastes. Plenty of prints on offer, if the originals are outside your budget.

    We stopped to enquire about the Cannon Beach nature trails and the docent was extremely helpful and took the time to give us maps and add personal insight to our questions.
