Small park with small beach but very peaceful. I was there maybe 2 hours after low tide so the beach is larger at times. Water was flowing from the hills down into the ocean... read more

Small park with small beach but very peaceful. I was there maybe 2 hours after low tide so the beach is larger at times. Water was flowing from the hills down into the ocean across smooth stones. Not sure if this flows year round. I got caught by incoming waves fully clothed so beware!! Loved it!

This is a great and historic beach area! Visit at low tide to see a portion of the old highway, and get around the point. Watch for the incoming tide though!!

Pretty little beach. Its got that misty fog, and greenish sand. With some sand dollars here and there (although I wasn't able to find a full one). Nice little gem.

Nice little beach break spot to stop. Had the beach all to myself (along with my dog) but I'm sure it would be a lot busier during high season.

We visited here while staying in Cannon Beach. It is a short 15 minute drive or so. Parking seemed plenty. There is a small waterfall on the beach with a stream running to the ocean. There is also a huge rock formation on the beach, easy to climb on to view birds and tidepools. Many huge rocks on the beach... More

Visits to Cannon Beach can be quite crowded on a warm summer day if you stay at the main beach in town. Want to get away from the crowds? Drive south toward Arch Cape and pull into Hug Point State Park. Depending on the tide, you can find yourself all alone in a alcove of cliffs on the Pacific Ocean... More

Hug Point is a lovely spot for scenic vistas and picnicking. There was a couple on the beach having engagement photos taken while we were there.

What a beautiful beach with all sorts of nooks and sea caves that are accessible during low tide. The water was cold, but it sure was refreshing on tired feet. this is a great place to soak of nature and great photo ops abound!
