Cannon Beach, Cannon Beach

#2 of 418 in Outdoors in Oregon
The shoreline at Cannon Beach is one of Oregon’s most treasured landmarks, distinguished by its pristine sandy beaches and the monolithic Haystack Rock. This picturesque beach is abundant with wildlife and is perfect for exploring tide pools and spotting birds, including tufted puffins and cormorants. Avoid the summer crowds at Ecola Creek by opting for the stretches towards Silver Point instead. The town itself is full of independent shops, art galleries, and theaters, thanks to strict regulations limiting large chain stores and restaurants. Put Cannon Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Cannon Beach day trip planning website.
