Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
Geologic Formation Beach
Rising 72 m (235 ft) above the Pacific shoreline, Haystack Rock serves as one of the Oregon Coast's most iconic monuments. You can reach the formation, known as a sea stack, at low tide from the beach. It plays home to an array of tide pool-dwelling creatures like crabs, starfish, and anemones. Visit the monolithic rock and the surrounding seaside area and partake of beachfront activities, such as picnicking, kite-flying, and enjoying nature. Bird-watchers should keep an eye out for the great number of species that periodically nest on and near the sea stack. Be sure to check local tide tables to ensure your safety and access to the rock. Make Haystack Rock part of your personalized Cannon Beach itinerary using our Cannon Beach holiday planner.

  • The beach is so pretty. The tide was low so we were able to walk up to rock. However there were some birds nesting and there was signage up asking everyone to stay away due to the nesting birds. Still...  more »
  • The scenery is amazing. 16 million years old rocks look looks new. We walked for two hours and it felt like thirty minutes the most.  more »
