Oregon Coast Day Trip: Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock

Explore the stunning beaches and beautiful towns along Oregon’s northern coast on this full-day trip from Portland. Visit the charming towns of Manzanita and Cannon Beach — home of the famous Haystack Rock — browse antique shops and art galleries, and stop several beaches to maximize your time at the Oregon Coast!

What to Expect
Your 9-hour tour of Oregon’s northern coast starts with early-morning hotel pickup in downtown Portland. Be sure to grab your coffee and breakfast for the 2-hour ride to Neahkahnie Point, an amazing spot to look for whales and where you can see 30 miles of Oregon's coastline! Disembark in Manzanita where you can spend time on the beach or explore the quaint boutiques in their downtown.

Next, head to Short Sand Beach where you will walk for 1/4 mile through an old growth forest before arriving at a beautifully secluded sandy beach. Then head into Cannon Beach for some antiquing and lunch (own expense) before continuing to Haystack Rock. Walk out to Haystack’s base (if the tide is out), explore tide pools and glimpse scurrying sea creatures. Then enjoy some free time to walk along the beach, warm up with locally-roasted coffee, and peruse the town’s eclectic shops and art galleries. Your return trip stops at Camp 18, a historical logging museum that provides a window into Oregon’s timber industry. You’ll arrive back at your Portland hotel in the evening.

We went on a day that the water and pictures almost looked like a water colored painting. Gorgeous coast and a lot of areas to get some fabulous pictures

All places you visit have a 30 min to enjoy it, because it’s a long way round trip and they show you very nice and different places.
