Make sure you go check out this amazing site at low tide! My kids, 12 and 8, loved it!!! We saw all sorts of sea life!

Long white sandy beach with enormous monolithic rock formations shrouded in fog. Hundreds of seabirds swarm and nest on the rocky islands. After your walk enjoy dinner or a glass of wine in Cannon Beach.

This was a beautiful location. Compared to other beaches we had visited it is a bit more busier with the famous haystack rock. Even with how busy it was the beach remained clean. The location is nearby shops and restaurants.

The rock itself is an interesting landmark well worth locating. If you're not planning on making it a beach trip as well, finding a place to pull over for photos is like the proverbial needle in a haystack. Yet, I think it's worth it!

Haystack Rock was a 10 minute walk on the beach from our hotel. During low tide, you can walk around the rock and explore the tidepools. There were hundreds of anemones.

If you are traveling in the late fall or winter, be sure to wear boots - puddles form high up on the beach along the walk. It is an easy walk from the public parking and main street (Hemlock St.).

You can no longer visit the Goonies' house in Astoria. There are no trespassing signs in the driveway. I read another review that said if you ride down a side street on a bike you can somewhat see it.
