The sandy beach is heaven but it also has caves, a waterfall, rock formations, and loads of stones to sift through. Watch the tide as it might keep you stranded if you walk down the beach and find it has crept up to the rocks...More

This is such a beautiful beach. The cliffs and rocks are fantastic. We loved exploring the small cave inlets and climbing on the rocks to get really great photos.

Worth the hike (30 minutes from car to caves) at low tide. Not good for handicapped person, walking is required. Fantastic caves to view, small water fall, beach hidden around the point.

This is a wonderful beach just south of Cannon Beach. There are some really cool caves that you can check out, and you can actually walk around the point on the same path that wagons of yesteryear used for travel. Super cool, and not crowded....More

Great spot to take kids at low tide to explore tide pools without long walk. Bathrooms close. Caves to explore. At high tide little sand and mostly rocks.

I'm not sure the official answer but we did see some people that started a fire inside one of the caves.
