Plan the Ultimate Romantic Getaway in Cannon Beach

Watch the sun set into the ocean overlooking one of Oregon’s most beautiful stretches of coastline. How can you beat that for romantic? There is a magical combination in Cannon Beach. Long walks on the sand and a crackling beach fire are only the beginning. Luxurious lodgings offer some of the Oregon Coast's best views. Our restaurants provide the perfect place to enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner or celebrate any occasion. Need a special place to pop the question or seal your vows? We've got you covered. We even have a site called Hug Point, though kissing is allowed there too.

Book a Room with a View

Celebrate in style with a room overlooking our expansive stretch of sandy beach and rocky shoreline. Cannon Beach hotels and resorts offer some of the best views and most luxurious oceanfront lodging options on the Oregon Coast. Many offer views of Haystack Rock and other dramatic rock formations along our shoreline. Choose a room with a fireplace or an in-room spa to up the romance factor of your visit. It’s easy to have flowers, chocolates, champagne, and other gifts waiting in your room for your arrival. Many hotels offer romance packages that include these and other options, even an extravagant scattering of rose petals on the bed.

Make a Reservation for a Candlelit Dinner

Cannon Beach may be a small town, but you’ll discover some of the Oregon Coast’s best restaurants here. Intimate spots with talented chefs offer farm-to-table dining and creative takes on the best of Northwest seafood. You’ll find chef-owned restaurants housed in cozy cottages, lounges serving signature cocktails, and wine lists featuring the best of Northwest wines and beyond.

Cozy Up by a Beach Fire

Dig your feet in the cool sand and cuddle up around a crackling beach fire with the sound of the surf serenading. There’s no better finale to a long beach walk together. Bring some delectable charcuterie, supplies for making s’mores, a hot cup of coffee, or a bottle of wine to toast your future or wish upon a star.

Schedule a Couples Massage

Melt your worries away with a bit of pampering shared with the one you love. Cannon Beach spas offer massages for couples and a wide range of health and beauty treatments. Several Cannon Beach resorts also offer in-room massage services.

Share a Kiss at Sunset

Find the perfect perch and watch the sun drop behind the Pacific Ocean. No two sunsets are the same, and the light show can be your personal magical experience. Enjoy it from the balcony of your room on the beach or at a spectacular viewpoint. The beauty of our sunsets is impossible to describe, and the sunrises aren’t too bad either.

We’re Not the Only Ones Who Find Cannon Beach Romantic

Cannon Beach is consistently recognized as a top destination for romantic getaways. USA Today named Cannon Beach one of America’s ten most romantic coastal destinations, and the town was voted the Best Romantic Getaway by readers of The Oregonian.
