Maximize your beach time while at the Oregon Coast! Oregon’s coastline is graced with unforgettable vistas: dramatic cliffs, offshore rocks and sea lions, wide sandy beaches, majestic capes, historic lighthouses, enchanted forests and lovely small beach towns which artists and artisans make their home. Locations we may visit include: Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock, Short Sand Beach at Oswald West State Park, Neahkahnie Point, Ecola State Park, and Manzanita while enjoying spectacular views of the dramatic Oregon Coastline.
Neahkahnie Point: This peak is an inspiring place, where the Tillamook tribe believed their most powerful god resided. In fact, the name Neahkahnie comes from their words Ne ("place of") and Ekahnie ("supreme deity").
Manzanita: Manzanita is a beautiful oceanside city with seven miles of sandy beach and the third most photographed scenery in Oregon. While here you can enjoy a spectacular walk by the ocean or explore their lovely downtown.
Short Sand Beach/Oswald West State Park: Stretching along four miles of coastline in dense, temperate rainforest, Oswald West State Park has a beautifully secluded sandy beach and miles of trails leading to breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. This vast, scenic treasure is without a doubt one of the most spectacular parks in Oregon.
Cannon Beach: This picturesque small-town village by the sea is easily walkable and you will be able to explore meandering pathways, enjoy public art and courtyards spilling over with flowers. Known as one of the Northwest’s top art towns, Cannon Beach is filled with art galleries, specialty shops, cafes and fine dining restaurants. While in Cannon Beach you will have time for lunch at one of their amazing restaurants. Cannon Beach is also famous for its amazing beaches.
Historic Haystack Rock: Haystack Rock is one of Oregon’s most recognizable landmarks, home to colorful tidepools and diverse bird life. It rises 235 feet from the edge of the shoreline. At low tide, you can walk right up to it and find colorful sea stars and other fascinating tidepool creatures in its intertidal area. Puffins can be observed on Haystack Rock from early spring to mid-summer, offering the most accessible viewing of Tufted Puffins in the Northwest.
Ecola State Park: No visit to Cannon Beach would be complete without visiting Ecola State Park, perched dramatically on the edge of Tillamook Head. Ecola Park Road winds through old growth rainforest before emerging at one of the Oregon Coast’s most famous views, overlooking numerous rock formations and the capes and headlands miles to the south.
Return to Portland for drop-off at a downtown Portland hotel.
Haystack Rock towers on the shoreline. Waterfalls cascade onto the sand at Hug Point. Marine life peeks out at low tide. It’s no wonder National Geographic listed Cannon Beach as one of the 100 most beautiful places in the world in 2013. Plus the city’s many art galleries, restaurants, boutiques and oceanfront lodging can easily spark your imagination.
Haystack Rock, located in Cannon Beach, rises 235-feet out of the sand and the sea at the low tide line and is a protected Marine Garden. The Rock is also home to many birds, including tufted puffins, gulls and cormorants.
This amazing view is an awe-inspiring favorite for sunset watchers and those who simply like that feeling of their jaw dropping to stunning views of Manzanita or the Nehalem Bay.
Sightseeing opportunities begin the moment you enter the park. The entrance road meanders through a lush Sitka spruce forest, eventually opening up to a grassy bluff offering breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. You may recognize the viewpoint south, a scene from many published photographs. Sea stacks punctuate the long sweep of shoreline south, backed by the town of Cannon Beach and ridge of coastal mountains above.
Short Sand Beach lies sheltered in a cove blanketed by forests and edged with volcanic basalt and sandstone cliffs characteristic of the Oregon coastline. Nicknamed “Shorty’s” by locals, the beach is just a half mile walk through the woods.

It was a great tour
Didn't expect such a beauty! We are from Winnipeg and decided to spend our vacation in Portland (7 days). As we were browsing on the web we stumbled upon this tour and we thought it was quite interesting but because of the price, we were a bit skeptical. We contacted DayTrip4U to learn more information and with the help of the guys there (Thanks Zoi and Mihalis!) we booked it. We were picked up on time from the hotel and the transfer was very smooth and comfortable. The region of Oregon has truly stunning landscapes and we enjoyed every stop we made as we took some pretty good family pictures there too. My personal favorite was Ecola State Park... I really don't know why but I felt so calm and relaxed when we entered and helped me gather my thoughts. My kids enjoyed the tour as well, even though they were exhausted when we arrived at the hotel and fell straight asleep. Next time we visit Portland we will try another day trip too, for sure :)
