There is a cannon just outside of the castle in Super Mario Word 64 but it's locked ! It is near the water, on the beach. Can I get access to it ? If so, how ?

I believe you're talking about the cannon outside the castle in Super Mario 64 - this cannon will launch you up to a secret area, but only if you've got all 120 stars.

For getting all the stars and accessing this secret cannon:

Yoshi is up on top of the castle, and if you get up there, he'll hook you up with many extra lives :)

Carry out a triple jump, with the third jump taking place near the green wall to the right of the castle. Hang onto the roof and climb up to get to Yoshi.

This question is about how to unlock the cannon, not about how to get to the roof without it. – Dom Nov 14 '15 at 19:21
It's a good trick WITHOUT the cannon, but this person was asking how to use the cannon period! Perhaps you could present this in your own Q&A post? – user128965 Dec 12 '15 at 8:38
