This little town was named, as the name suggests, after a cannon from a shipwreck. The beach that is part of the town is almost 15 km long.

One of the largest coastal monoliths in the world, Haystack Rock, is a great pride of this place. That means a rock that is made up of only one piece. It measures over 70 metres in height. Around the rock there is an abundance of sea creatures, including starfish, crabs and others.
