Northern Arch Cape - Virtual Tour and Arch Cape Map
Cannon Beach, Oregon Virtual Tour

This access is hard to find, lurking along a winding set of roads that don't always connect up with Highway 101. But look for Shark Lane Road and you'll slowly find your way. There isn't much parking here, so you're probably better off parking near the highway and walking west.

Along the way, you'll find a road that ends at a small creek and bridge, which has been cut off to vehicle traffic.

The landscape here is much the same as elsewhere along Arch Cape: large cobblestones that give way to a short stretch of sandy beach. This stretch can be virtually non-existent if you encounter the area in a storm.

But the farther north you go the more you enter a sandy stretch beneath cliffs, until you reach the access known as Hug Point. This point, just before Hug Point, is often not accessible because of unruly tides around here.
