How would you like to go to the beach this summer and do something adventurous?  Here is our top 5 list of places to get set-up with surfboard, boogie board, and stand up paddle board equipment (and more).  We won’t try to fool you, you will need a wetsuit too.  All locations offer lessons to help you have a safe, fun time in the water.

Where are your favorite places to get out on the water in and around Cannon Beach and Seaside, OR?  We like Indian Beach in Ecola State Park.

Get out and explore our backyard and book your overnights with us.  We have two hotels in Cannon Beach and two in Seaside, OR.
