Quiet and stormy!

Travel a little way south from Cannon Beach and hardly a soul around. It was a bit of a wet day but still so nice to walk the beach and listen to the crashing waves!

We did a quick stop to check out the beach & cave. Thought the cave was really cool. The tide was in so we were not able to get around the point to explore further. Will have to do that another time at lower tide. Parking lot is located right off the highway so good for a quick stop.

With all the heavy rains, the hidden waterfall was roaring! Caves were fun and you can even hike around the point on the old road. Do not attemp this when tide is on the way in because you will get stuck!

The falls were especially impressive this year - lots of water and talk about a great backdrop for photographs!

I looked this beach before going on my trip. I knew there was a waterfall there, but you don't see it right away. Helpful tip, once you go down the path and steps, as you are looking at the ocean, go right, The waterfall is around the bend a bit. Also some caves and coves. So cool for exploring. Would... More

During my boyfriend and I's coastal road trip we stopped here before heading to our hotel in Cannon beach. This was such a romantic spot for him and I to walk around, take pictures, and explore around "hug point". It does not take long to explore and it is not too hard to get around once you get down the... More

Small park with small beach but very peaceful. I was there maybe 2 hours after low tide so the beach is larger at times. Water was flowing from the hills down into the ocean across smooth stones. Not sure if this flows year round. I got caught by incoming waves fully clothed so beware!! Loved it!

This is a great and historic beach area! Visit at low tide to see a portion of the old highway, and get around the point. Watch for the incoming tide though!!

Pretty little beach. Its got that misty fog, and greenish sand. With some sand dollars here and there (although I wasn't able to find a full one). Nice little gem.
