south along Highway 101 you can't help but stop and peak over
Oregon's steep cliffs. From high above you see something
specials lies beneath. The city you are looking at is
Manzanita. This city doesn't have outlet malls, large stores,
or tons of traffic. If you like that small-town feel, with a
beach that isn't small at all, you are going to love Manzanita.
This secret of Oregon's coast is just sixteen-miles below Cannon
Beach. While walking down Manzanita's largest street you find
yourself looking straight into the eyes of our Pacific Ocean.
At the street's end, you are on the beach.
Manzanita offers a ton of fun like the rest of Oregon's
coast. You can rent a funcycle, ride a horse, play in the
sand, or just go fly a kite. The picture above looks down at
Manzanita's beach, while this next picture takes a look up!
Looking to the south of
Manzanita, you can see almost endless beach. If you want to
get away from the hustle of the larger towns, but still want the beautiful
western sunset, Manzanita is your town.
