Summertime means beach days on beach days. When you visit Manzanita, Oregon in the summer months, you’ll definitely want to spend a day or two at Cannon Beach. There’s so much to do at the beach without breaking the bank, and it’s fun for the whole family! Below, you can read about all of the fun things to do at Cannon Beach with your family and friends. Luckily, Starfish Vacation Rentals has luxury properties in Cannon Beach all the way down to Rockaway Beach, so you’ll never be far from a fun-filled afternoon.

The Top 3 Fun Things to Do at Cannon Beach

Whether you are trying to get some much needed alone time, or want to have fun with a group, there’s no limit to the fun things you can do in Cannon Beach. Whether you have the whole day or just a few hours, you’ll be able to do all of the fun things at Cannon Beach!

Have a Picnic

Pick up some food from some of Manzanita’s favorite local restaurants, or make a delicious lunch in your private kitchen at Starfish Vacation Rentals. Layout a blanket or a towel, and voila! The perfect picnic to enjoy with your family—it’s al fresco dining, Oregon Coast style.

Read a Good Book

Finish or start that book you’ve been meaning to read while soaking up some Oregon sunshine. Bring an umbrella or some sunglasses, and so you don’t get too burnt, or let’s face it…caught in a summer drizzle! Listening to the waves crash against the rocks and shore while flipping the pages is one of the more calming things in life.

Watch for Whales and Other Marine Life

Bring some binoculars, your camera, and get ready to see some of the awesome marine life that lives off of the shore in Cannon Beach. You might see some whales making their way from the depths of the ocean and breaking the surface! Cannon Beach is also known for Haystack Rock. At low tide, the base of the rock holds magnificent tidepools commonly filled with sea stars, anemones, and the occasional nudibranch (learn more from our friends at the Haystack Rock Awareness Program!).
