Cannon Beach is a city located in Clatsop County, Oregon. Originally named Ecola, after the creek that empties into the Pacific Ocean to the north of the community, it was renamed in 1922 to Cannon Beach (the name of the beach that extends south of Ecola creek for eight miles until ending at Arch Cape) at the insistence of the US Post Office because the name was frequently confused with Eola. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 1,588.
