Cannon Beach - Oregon Coast Visitors Association

Cannon Beach

Famous for Haystack Rock towering 235 feet from the edge of the shoreline, long sandy stretches of beach and beautiful State Parks nearby, Cannon Beach offers an exceptional Oregon Coast experience only 90 minutes from Portland. A walk along the beach is a visual treat, with ever-changing vistas of ocean, mountains and rugged coastal outcroppings including Haystack Rock, a National Wildlife Refuge where visitors will discover colorful tide pools and nesting seabirds including Tufted Puffins. Just minutes from downtown Cannon Beach is Ecola State Park, perched dramatically on the edge of a headland and offering panoramic coastal views, easy walking paths to scenic picnic areas and extensive hiking trails.

The picturesque small-town village by the sea is easily walkable and visitors can explore meandering pathways, enjoy public art and courtyards spilling over with flowers. Known as one of the Northwest’s top art towns, Cannon Beach is filled with art galleries, specialty shops, cafes and fine dining restaurants. Visitors can watch glassblowers at work in their studio or attend year-round live theater performances. A wide selection of luxurious oceanfront lodgings overlook this remarkable stretch of coastline, putting visitors just steps from scenic wonders and minutes from outstanding recreation areas and exceptional Oregon Coast sightseeing.

The beauty of Cannon Beach has not gone unnoticed. Featured in Stephen Leatherman’s book, America’s Best Beaches, Cannon Beach was rated Best Overall Beach in the state of Oregon. It was named one of America’s Best 100 Art Towns by author John Villani and National Geographic listed Cannon Beach as “one of the world’s 100 most beautiful places” in their June 2013 issue.

Major annual events include the Northwest’s longest running sandcastle contest; arts festivals including the Stormy Weather Arts Festival, Spring Unveiling and Plein Air & More; a yoga festival and the Savor Cannon Beach Wine & Culinary Festival.

 


Featured activities

  • Coaster Theatre Playhouse

    108 North Hemlock Street
    Cannon Beach, Oregon 97110
    503-436-1242

    The Coaster Theatre Playhouse has been a vibrant part of the artistic community in Cannon Beach since 1972. From its early beginnings as the Coaster Roller Rink in the 1920’s, this historic site operated as a skating rink through the 1950’s. In 1972 the building was purchased by Maurie Clark, a Portland patron of the arts and the Coaster Theatre was founded. The Coaster Theatre’s inaugural season brought the PSU Summer Stock Company to Cannon Beach and the first Dicken’s Play that began a memorable holiday tradition and remains a wonderful theatrical experience years later. In 2001 the theatre became a not-for-profit organization and each year the Coaster Theatre Playhouse produces 5 plays and 2 musicals in addition to special events selected to entertain all visitors to the Oregon coast.
