Haystack rock is a great place to check out. Nice beach. Can get busy at times. We found better parking down from the rock.

The scenery was just so pretty. It was a perfect day no clouds or overcast. I got so many beautiful pictures. The Oregon Coast is a beautiful ride to take.

Looks just like the pictures. It was a "smoky" day due to the Canadian fires blowing in from up north...But we were still able to see various forms of seaside in and around the rocks.

It's a beautiful beach and if you're a Goonies fan you'll love seeing this. The beach is very busy, which is to be expected, the sand is very soft. It's a great spot to take pictures.

Unlike so many Pacific Northwest beaches the sand is soft, not full of shells or driftwood making it easy to walk along the beach and play. Completely uninterrupted views of Haystack Rock with the Tillamook lighthouse popping out in the back. A playground for kids...More

You can no longer visit the Goonies' house in Astoria. There are no trespassing signs in the driveway. I read another review that said if you ride down a side street on a bike you can somewhat see it.
