Cannon-Beach is a popular tourist destination on Oregon's northern coast, just an hour and a half drive from Portland. The town stretches for four miles along the Pacific Ocean, and the downtown main street is filled with colorful flowers, quaint shops and art galleries, bistros and lots of places to stop and rest. Cannon Beach has nine miles of beautiful, wide beach perfect for strolling, exploring tidepools or flying a kite. And, the town of Cannon Beach is also home to famous Haystack Rock. This giant rock is 235 feet high, making it is the third largest monolith in the world. It has been designated as a marine and bird sanctuary, where several species of birds come to rest and sea creatures such as barnacles, crabs and starfish live in the tidepools around it. A walk on the beach at sunset to the sound of the shorebirds is a must when visiting Cannon Beach! Nearby Ecola State Park offers hiking trails and picnic areas, and a dramatic, panoramic view of Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock and the Coast Range. In fact, this view is one of the most photographed on the Oregon coast! A two-mile trail connects Ecola Point to Indian Beach, and six miles further takes you to Tillamook Head, where you can get a good look at Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, or "Terrible Tilly." This is the only privately owned lighthouse on the Oregon Coast and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Cannon Beach Weather & Climate

The Northern Coast of Oregon has the least sunshine of any area in the state - but the gorgeous scenery more than makes up for the lack of sunshine. The northwest region is a heavily timbered area with lots of rainfall much of the year, resulting in lush pastures and rich farmland. Along the coast, the average annual snowfall is only one to three inches, with many years in which there is no measurable amount at all. Thunderstorms can occur in the valleys, but are usually not severe. Major flooding occurs in the coastal streams as a result of several days of moderate to heavy rain. Melting of a heavy snow pack on the Coast Range and/or the Cascades greatly increases the flood potential. The only other severe weather conditions on the Oregon coast are hailstorms, which are generally light and cover very small areas, and occasional high winds.
