make sure you hit this at low tide so you can go around the "bend" and get the full experience! rocky beach, and eagles overhead. the way down is a little steep on the steps but not lengthy. just be careful.
Our hotel recommended that we drive 2 miles from Cannon Beach to Hug Point. Easy walk down to the beach from the parking lot and the views and caves and waterfall and miles of beach are so spectacular. Definitely a place to see on the Oregon Coast!
You could easily pass by this park but don't! This is a gem of a park that is right off the freeway and is a step into the past. Before the highway, stagecoaches would travel along the beach.

Great beach park surrounded by cliffs. About ten minutes south of Cannon Beach. Separated into two sections by a point. Watch going between sections when tide is coming in or you might get cut off with no easy way back to parking area. The parking area is at a relatively steep level and the last 30 feet to the beach... 更多
You can see the ruts left from the many wagons that had passed this way. A short walk from the parking lot and able to see caves and lots of animal life. The sea anemones were plentiful. Was a great place to spend some time.
Hug Point was recommended by someone in town and I am so happy they told us to head there. The walk on the beach was incredibly beautiful and quiet. We visited Haystack Rock after and there was a ton of visitors on holiday. Hug Point is dog friendly and has beautiful views on the coast with great coastline to walk.
Took a nice long walk along the beach, also explored tidal pools, caves, interesting rock formation, etc. many sand dollars! It was so beautiful, and intriguing during our visit during a low tide hours. We are not that good at picture taking, but the view will make us look like expert photographers.
