Oregon - Cannon Beach

Cannon Beach is a city in Clatsop County, Oregon, United States. The population was 1,690 at the 2010 census.

Cannon Beach is an affluent tourist resort destination. Because of its proximity to Portland, Oregon, it is particularly known as a weekend getaway spot for Portlanders.

Cannon Beach is recognized by its well-known landmark, Haystack Rock, located southwest of downtown Cannon Beach, near Tolovana Park. This igneous rock has an elevation of 235 feet (72 m) and is often accessible at low tide, especially in the summertime. There is a small cave system that penetrates the rock and can be seen from the coastline. The rock is also protected as a marine sanctuary, Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge and events are not allowed within 100 feet (30 m) of either side of the rock. Near Haystack Rock are the Needles, two tall rocks rising straight out of the water.

Four parks can be found within city limits: Haystack Hill State Park, Les Shirley Park, John Yeon State Natural Site (closed to visitors) and Tolovana Beach State Recreation Site.


Cannon Beach ist eine Kleinstadt in Clatsop County im US-Bundesstaat Oregon. Die Stadt ist ein geschäftiger Fremdenverkehrsort im Pazifischen Nordwesten. Sie hat zirka 1500 Einwohner.

Durch seine Nähe zu Portland ist Cannon Beach ein beliebter Ausflugsort für die Einwohner der größten Stadt des Bundesstaates.

Cannon Beach ist berühmt für seine Landmarke Haystack Rock nahe Tolovana Park im Südwesten des Ortes sowie für seine Künstlerkolonie. Viele Touristen kommen auch zur Walbeobachtung hierher. Nördlich des Orts liegt der Ecola State Park, etwa 14 km südlich der Oswald West State Park.
