Haystack Rock is one of those places where it looks fantastic when you google a picture, but in real life it is that much more. Beautiful in every kind of weather even when it is raining, the rain adds a misty loom to the rock that changes the look completely from when it is sunny. A must see at sunset.

The rock provides great treat to photography of the pacific! The views from different angles during the sun set becomes a photographer's delight!

A bucket list item for me. Made special plans to visit the area just to see it in May, 2016. My husband was like "where is your stupid rock" until he saw it. Very impressive site. Could not take enough pictures of it. In January, 2017, returned with our oldest grandson, so that he could experience it. He was fascinated... More

We did a bunch of stops along the Oregon Coast and this one was my favorite. I think it's the fact that it's so close to shore. I really wish we could've been during low tide. It's easy to get to as well and you can bring the dogs!

Cannon Beach is beautiful! I thought we were the only ones crazy enough to go to the tide pools during low tide in December at 5 at night. I was wrong. There were tons of people doing the same thing as us, looking for anemones, starfish and all the other critters you can find in the tide pools, only in... More

One of my favourite beaches of all times! Goes for miles and does not disappoint. Haystack rock will usually have wildlife on it, mainly birds. Sometimes puffins. Rangers will usually set up information and do talks on the vegistation of the area.

memories of The Goonies movie come right back to you as soon as you walk onto the beach. When the wind blows the waves are so powerful.

Of course if you go to Cannon Beach you must see Haystack rock. Best viewed walking along beach, but from the road it can be seen as well.
