Top Things to Do When Staying in Your Manzanita, Seaside, or Arch Cape Vacation Rental
Tucked in along a jaw-dropping stretch of coastline with Cannon Beach to the North and Manzanita to the South, Arch Cape is a hidden treasure on the Oregon Coast. The perfect town when you want to be away from it all, while just a short drive away from all the restaurants, shops, cafes, and galleries in Manzanita, Cannon Beach, and Seaside.

There is a reason that the line out the door is filled with locals and visitors alike – this is some seriously delicious coffee! Organic, sourced internationally and roasted locally…it all comes together at Sleepy Monk as they craft coffee that will keep you coming back for a cup and a scone on the daily.
Caution is required when exploring this state recreation area, but as long as you explore safely you will be rewarded with sandy beaches and gorgeous views. Hug Point is a name with a historic background. Before the highway was built, this beach trail was the only way for beach goers to head south, by stagecoach. At low tide you can even walk along the original stagecoach road and see the wheel ruts. A lovely place to stop for a picnic with a view!
This moderate 5.5-mile loop requires a little planning ahead in terms of tide tables, so make sure you depart and plan your return when the tide is at its safest levels. All that planning will be rewarded as you traverse through old growth forest, explore beautiful Cove Beach, and take in the views of Gulf Rock and Castle Rock.
After all that exploring, it will be time for a sweet treat and there is no better place than Bruce’s Candy Kitchen in Cannon Beach. Offering Oregon Coast classics like saltwater taffy and seafoam chocolates, as well as a wide array of gummies and sours, you will be glad you made time for this classic Cannon Beach favorite.
This Manzanita favorite is known for their take on gourmet comfort food. The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion (or any night) this restaurant is run by a talented mother and son team, who will have you feeling like family. Don’t miss the bay shrimp cocktail, whipped feta, and crab risotto.
