Cannon Beach combines the exceptional beauty of the Oregon coast with oceanfront lodging and a picture-perfect village by the sea. National Geographic named Cannon Beach one of the Top 100 Beautiful Places in the World (June, 2013). You’ll be captivated by its stunning scenic wonders and the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean. Discover colorful sea stars decorating rocks along the shoreline; observe herds of elk grazing in coastal meadows, and watch puffins and other water birds nestling in Haystack Rock. Iconic Haystack Rock, steps from the Tolovana Inn, is one of the world’s largest monoliths, surrounded by fascinating tide pools to explore.
At the same time, Cannon Beach has earned the reputation of one of the Northwest’s top art communities featuring dozens of galleries and public art and the annual Stormy Weather Art Festival. In the spring and summer, gorgeous flowers line the streets and courtyards welcoming visitors to experience the town’s unique restaurants, shops, festivals, parks and theater. In fall and winter, the pace slows, and you can spend a little more time with your morning coffee or lingering in a favorite gallery, or enjoy watching the day unfold in your oceanfront suite, next to the fireplace. It’s a perfect spot for storm watching or gazing at a sunny, glorious winter day at the beach.
The opportunity for fun and relaxation in Cannon Beach surrounds you.
