this is a bucket list beach, visiting in November the weather wasn't bad at all, early morning we had jackets. Mid afternoon just hoodies. The low tide was the best for sea creatures

If you come to Cannon Beach, you must take a pic with Haystack and watch a sunset on the beach. Well worth your time and experience!

Haystack Rock is the iconic sea stack formation on the north Or. coast. A marvel to look at, home to many bird species including the Puffin. Low tides reveal tide pools teaming with sea life.
