Possibly the most breathtaking beach on the Oregon coast is Cannon Beach, bordered by a pretty town. Wander around the town with touristy-but-nice art galleries and gift shops and then head out to walk across the sands and go for a paddle. Beyond the rock you can explore a number of rock pools packed with sea life like the adorable hermit crab or simply stroll into the sunset and marvel at the glories of nature.
