Its main landmark is that of Haystack Rock, a large sea stack off the shore of the beach.
Guided by an old pirate treasure map, the Goonies ride their bikes out to Cannon Beach. Using the doubloon found with the map and lining it up with Haystack Rock, Mikey discovers the entrance to the location of the treasure - the Lighthouse Lounge.
Behind the scenes
Parts of The Goonies were filmed on location on Cannon Beach; the city is located about twenty-five miles away from Astoria.
- If real world locations of Cannon Beach and Astoria are taken into consideration, the Goonies' bike ride down south would have taken at at least about two hours and twenty minutes to get there.
