5 Fantastic Cannon Beach Sunset Locations

As you might imagine, the sunsets are famous near our Cannon Beach hotel. All you need to ask yourself is: what kind of experience do I want? From tranquil, intimate ocean views near Cannon Beach, Oregon, to the sounds of laughter and chatter from others indulging in the same spectacular experience, you can have either or both. Be sure to keep track of the sunset time for each day and plan to be at your destination at least an hour beforehand. 

  1. Rekindle your Goonies nostalgia and head to Haystack Rock & The Needles. This location does attract quite a few tourists, but there’s plenty of space to stretch out and remain socially-distanced. 
  2. Those who may prefer a more intimate outing should try accessing Cannon Beach from Ocean Avenue. There tend to be fewer people and an uninhibited view of a Pacific Northwest sunset. Don’t forget to bring a flashlight so that you can safely find your way back!
  3. While it’s a little hidden, Silver Point, located south of Tolovana Beach State Park, features outstanding coastal views, tidepools, and cliffsides. 
  4. Sunset Beach State Recreation Site provides direct access to the beach and unbeatable views. It’s name says it all!
  5. Located at the north end of Cannon Beach, Whale Park is a great place to watch the sun go down and catch a glimpse of a fleeting whale tail.
