The Oregon Coast - A unique destination to explore.
Astounding vistas, rocky headlands, craggy rocks, rivers, forests, coastal dunes and miles of spectacular Pacific Coast shoreline await you on the Oregon Coast. From the picturesque town of Astoria to the little village of Yachats, the Oregon Coast takes you through bustling resort towns with carousels and quiet villages with old time ice cream parlors, all set on a wild and scenic coastline. Outdoor and nature enthusiasts are welcomed by 70 State Parks, the Oregon Dunes and some of the most diverse marine life in the world. Sit back and watch whales breaching along endless stretches of beach. If not storm-watching, find a quiet protected spot to sip sundowners with a brilliant sunset.
The famous Haystack Rock towers 235 feet from the shoreline of Cannon Beach, an iconic symbol of the Oregon Coast. One of the most popular resort towns on the Oregon Coast, Cannon Beach offers a rugged coastline with ever changing ocean views, mountains and an abundance of wildlife for nature lovers.
The town of Cannon Beach is a top art town full of art galleries, where summer flowers line the streets and visitors fill the shops, cafes and restaurants as they come to explore this special part of the Oregon Coast. Stroll the meandering pathways through the town. Enjoy year round live theatre and watch glassblowers busy in their studios.
Enjoy the long sandy stretches of quiet beaches. Haystack Rock is part of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge and is home to a variety of seabirds, especially the puffins that rest of Haystack Rock. Fly kites, build sandcastles and walk for miles along the beach. During low tide, walk to Haystack Rock to explore the tidal pools and sea caves. Cannon Beach is the perfect place to storm watch and to enjoy a spectacular Oregon sunset. The Oregon Coast is home to beautiful State Parks.
