Just south of Cannon Beach sits Arch Cape, a small residential community nestled between state parks on its north and south ends with a lovely crescent shaped sandy beach. Pristine and strikingly beautiful, the beach has tall Capes on either end and a large rock monolith called Castle Rock sits sentry in the ocean.
There is a plethora of hiking opportunities in the area and the 425 mile long Oregon Coast Trail can be accessed from Arch Cape. Situated only 5 minutes away from both the villages of Cannon Beach and Manzanita, Arch Cape has all the benefits of convenience as well as the secluded nature of a coastal retreat. What keeps people coming back to Arch Cape is the exquisite beauty of it coastal surroundings and its relaxed atmosphere.
