  6. What time is low tide? There are two low tides per day.  We have tide guides at the front desk. Or check here for a time table online.
  7. What is the weather going to be in two months? This part of the Oregon Coast is a temperate rainforest.  Weather forecasts more than 1 or 2 days out are unreliable. We suggest checking out the weather forecast from previous years to determine the weather. We typically have great blue skies from May-Sept.
  8. How come there is no fast food in Cannon Beach?  City ordinances prevent franchises and large corporations from opening in Cannon Beach.  This preserves the small town feel that many visitors to Cannon Beach have come to expect and enjoy.
  9. Which restaurant delivers to the hotel?  Only one delivers, Fultanio’s Pizza.  Almost all restaurants will do carry out orders.
  10. How tall is Haystack Rock?  Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach is 235 feet tall and is accessible by foot during low tide. Haystack Rock in Cannon beach is claimed to be the third largest monolith that can be reached by land. It is located just north of two smaller rock formations called the Needles.
  11. Can you climb Haystack Rock?  Not any longer.  It is now a Protected Wildlife Refuge.
  12. What is that building out on the island?  Tillamook Head Light House.  It is inactive now.  The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum has some great information as well as a scale model.
  13. Where is the beach they filmed the Twilight films at?  In Ecola State Park, the north part of the park is Indian Beach.  It is also where some of the beach scenes from The Goonie’s were filmed.
  14. Can we have bonfires on the beach?  Yes.  It is a popular evening activity, and you can get your supplies from the front desk.
  15. What is the Ocean temperature? Although it changes throughout the year an average Ocean temp is 57 degrees Fahrenheit.
