Whether it’s just the two of you or a large group, you will find all of the services needed to make your visit unforgettable. There’s no better setting for a perfect wedding or renewing of vows; but whatever you have to celebrate, Cannon Beach is guaranteed to make your occasion special.

Here are some of the ways to make your next romantic escape or special occasion in Cannon Beach a memorable one:

Room With a View: 

Celebrate in style with a room at some of the top luxury inns on the Oregon Coast or find a perfect view at several comfortable oceanfront resorts. Curl up by the fireplace or watch the sunset from your private balcony. Cannon Beach offers more oceanfront lodging options overlooking iconic rock formations on the Oregon Coast than any other coastal community.

Romantic Strolls:

There’s no better place for a romantic stroll than the wide sandy beaches of Cannon Beach. Watch the sunset at Haystack Rock or set out for uncrowded beaches north or south.

Intimate Dining: 

Several Cannon Beach restaurants are the perfect setting for celebrating a special occasion. You’ll find fine dining, outstanding wine selections and tempting desserts for a dining experience to remember.

A Beach Fire:

Enjoy a cozy cuddle around a crackling beach fire with your feet in the sand and the sound of the surf serenading. Toast to your future or wish upon a star.

Massage or Spa Day: 

Treat yourself to a massage or spa pampering at Cannon Beach Spa, Elements By the Sea Spa, Sundance Wellness Center or Ocean Spa. Several resorts also offer in-room massage or massage rooms where you can book a relaxing escape or a couple's massage.

Hotel Romance Packages: 

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.

Share a Sunset: 

The beauty is impossible to describe. When the sun drops toward the Pacific Ocean, there seems to be no limit to the colorful backdrops painted by Mother Nature. The maritime layer can turn the sun into a glowing ball or the entire landscape can be bathed in golden light. Even when the sun drops below the horizon, the light show can continue with cloud formations lighting up, displaying panoramas with an endless range of colors from pink and purple to orange, yellow and red. With Haystack Rock or other formations in the foreground, the scene becomes the picture-perfect subject for photographers or a once in a lifetime experience to be shared with the special person in your life. The sunrises aren’t too bad either.
