Awesome beach. Very scenic. Beautiful sunsets. Great for photos. 6 mile (roundtrip) trail along the coast if you're looking for a hike.

Start your adventure by heading to Cannon Beach, Or. Either head west on Highway 26 from Portland, OR. or Highway 101 south from Aberdeen Wa. Plan to arrive at the town a few hours before sunset, the beach stretches a couple miles, and it is awesome to walk along the beach during the day. There is public parking in the town but it does fill up quickly depending on the time of year that you visit.

If you're a photographer like me try to plan where to take your shot of Haystack rock and the Needles. This beach is great for sunset shots!

After the sun has gone down make a fire on the beach, fires are allowed and you'll see a lot of people hanging out on the beach well after the sun has gone down. There are hotels and campsites in the town as well as a few miles away from the town if your looking to stay in the area.

Great Beach!

I've never seen the Goonies, so this beach doesn't hold as much nostalgia as it does for most but I still loved it! We arrived at night to play with the phosphorescence that sometimes is present in the sand. We had little luck save for a few sparks of green in the sand. The next morning gave us some beautiful sunshine to take in the glory of Haystack Rock and Needles!

Breathtaking at Sunset

My husband and I took trip to Cannon Beach during one of our evenings in Oregon and we are so glad we did! Sunset at Haystack Rock is breathtaking and it was so quiet - not many people where out so it felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. Such a stunning location and I just wish we could have had more time to explore!

The Best Stop In Oregon

I visited Cannon Beach on a recent road trip through Oregon and it was the best stop on my trip. I extended my trip just to stay an extra day. I camped at the Sea Ranch Park which is walking distance from town. The town also has great food and breweries. Make sure you add this stop to your trip!
