Cannon Beach, Oregon, one of the most majestic stretches of shore in the Pacific Northwest, is famous for Haystack Rock, a massive rock formation jutting out of the sea. While the water is often too crisp to enjoy without a wetsuit, the silky smooth shore is ideal for meandering walks, sandcastle construction and puffin sightings. In addition, photographers will rejoice as the sweeping ocean views and ideal lighting offer optimal ingredients for enchanting landscape shots.
