More Beaches Near Cannon Beach

Three miles south of town is Arcadia Beach State Recreation Site, one of the prettiest little beaches on the north coast. Another mile farther south you’ll find Hug Point State Recreation Site,which has picnic tables, a sheltered beach, and the remains of an old road that was cut into the rock face of this headland. Oswald West State Park, 10 miles south of Cannon Beach, is one of my favorites of all the parks on the Oregon coast. A short trail leads to a driftwood-strewn cobblestone beach on a small cove. Headlands on either side of the cove can be reached by hiking trails that offer wonderful views. The waves here are popular with surfers, and there’s a walk-in campground.
