5 Tips You Should Know for the Ultimate Romantic Cannon Beach Getaway
Drink some wine, stroll the beach, cuddle up by a fire and watch the sunset into the Pacific overlooking one of Oregon’s most beautiful stretches of coastline. How can you beat that for romantic? Cannon Beach is consistently recognized as a top-named destination for romantic getaways. USA Today named Cannon Beach one of America’s ten most romantic coastal destinations and was voted the Best Romantic Getaway by readers of The Oregonian. There’s even a place called Hug Point, though kissing is allowed there too. Here are some ideas to make your next romantic escape or special occasion in Cannon Beach a memorable one:
#1 Book a Room With a View:
Celebrate in style with a room overlooking Haystack Rock and our stunningly beautiful beach. Cannon Beach offers more oceanfront lodging options overlooking iconic rock formations on the Oregon Coast than any other coastal community. 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.
#2 Make a Reservation for a Candlelit Dinner or Take it To-Go:
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. Chef-owned restaurants housed in cozy cottages, lounges serving signature cocktails, and wine lists featuring the best of Northwest wines and beyond. Most offer great takeout options that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your room or a picnic on the beach.
#3 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. Toast to your future or wish upon a star.
#4 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.
#5 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 Cannon Beach sunsets is impossible to describe. The sunrises aren’t too bad either.
