Dog Friendly: Cannon Beach, Oregon

Cannon Beach
Do you think I was having a good time?

After my paddleboarding adventures in Lake Tahoe, California, it was time to pack up the car and head northwest to a magical place called Oregon.

Located a little less than 2 hours west of Portland, Oregon is a place where my dog-dreams came true: Cannon Beach, Oregon. I spent one of the the best days of my life there. Hiking, playing in the sand and enjoying some stress-free time with my humans. We even found ourselves a little secret & secluded beach. Best. Day. Ever!!!

Cannon Beach, Oregon: A Canine Must See

Cannon Beach is one of the best places to be if you are dog. Why? Well, because as long as you are a well-behaved, good-good-boy (or girl), then you are free to play on this beach….LEASH FREE!!!

You read that correctly. Dogs are allowed to be on Cannon Beach without a leash!

That boob-looking thing behind me? That is Haystack Rock, one of Oregon’s most recognizable landmarks. It rises 235 feet from the edge of the shoreline: a very big boob, indeed!
And oh boy are there lots of things to do, see and smell. Miles and miles of sandy beaches sprinkled with tasty pieces of driftwood (that make the perfect fetch toy). Miles and miles of pacific ocean water to frolic in. Just be ready…the water is MUCH colder than the water I am used to in Miami. Thank god I have fur.

If long-walks through lush green woods is more your style, you can do that too! There are also miles and miles of hiking trails you and your humans can enjoy.

Just north of Cannon Beach is place called Ecola State Park. The humans and I decided to wander down a road in the park and we are so happy we did. We ended up stumbling on another secluded and B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L beach: Crescent Beach.

Check out some of the pictures of our hiking journey:
