Oregon Coast Travel Guide

Map North South

Cannon Beach

  • Artists, photographers, and writers are inspired with the rugged natural beauty of the Coast Range with Haystack Rock and the Needles.
  • For a romantic hideaway, try beachcombing and exploring in the marine garden tide pools around Haystack Rock, kite flying, or surf fishing.
  • Farther south leads to Oswald West State Park, Neah-Kah-Nie Mountain and the golf resort community of Manzanita.
  • Across Nahalem Bay sits Wheeler with its waterfront park and marina.

Rockaway Beach & Garibaldi

  • Rockaway Beach has 7 miles of sandy beach. The town has shops, restaurants, and 300 plus motel rooms.
  • Garibaldi maintains a U.S. Coast Gaurd station. Fishing, both sport and commercial, is active out of Garibladi's harbor.


  • Tillamook is the supply center for the dairy industry and boasts more cows than people.
  • Tillamook cheese is the largest cheese factory on the coast. See cheese being made as you take the self-guided tour. The shop here sells gifts, cheese, and yummy ice cream.
  • The Blue Heron Cheese Factory & the Blimp Hanger Museum are also great stops.
