This tiny unincorporated residential hub offers visitors a peaceful place to retreat and explore the exquisite beaches and forest near the coastal arch of rock called Arch Cape. The beach combines sand and cobblestone rocks with natural rock structures and fantastic tide-pooling, especially at low tide, the only time you can access some beaches. You’re at the edge of Oswald West State Park and near Hug Point State Park, and a quick drive to Ecola and Fort Stevens State Parks, so hiking opportunities abound. When you are ready for cultural amenities, hop in the car and in minutes you’re in the charming town of Manzanita or the restaurants and art galleries of Cannon Beach. For coastal quiet and unparalleled beach exploration, Arch Cape is a fantastic place to stay on the Oregon coast.
