Went here on a Tuesday afternoon and it was GORGEOUS. You get to see the mountainscape on one sod and the beach on the other. Not too crowded either.

Nice beach, Haystack Rock is a beautiful sight to see, but a bit busy.

Easy beach stroll with views of sea critters and rock formations. Due to it being such a popular spot, Its almost more fun to go when the weather is ugly.

I liked it. A little too touristy that takes away from the beauty of the place but I don't feel like it was a waste of time. Worth seeing.

We walked two and a half miles down the beach at low tide. Got a chance to see the tide pools around Haystack Rock. Happy to see Friends of Haystack Rock working to keep the uneducated from trampling over the fragile ecosystem. A beautiful day.
