Attractions for Everyone in Cannon Beach!
Cannon Beach attractions accommodate everyone, whether you enjoy actively walking around or prefer to stay put and observe, find a spot where it's warm or head out into howling wind, dive into a century ago or experience the present-day Cannon Beach. Visitors come from near and far just to see the epically sized Haystack Rock that juts out from the sands right in front of downtown. They also come to see our more moving attraction: the estimated 18,000 Gray Whales that migrate past our shores every year.
