Points of Interest

1. Pacific Beaches

Wide-open, flat beaches are the hallmark of the Pacific Northwest. The huge winter storms plane the beaches flat and take sand offshore, only to be restored by the summer waves.

2. Cold Surf

The water is clod year-round here, but it's still nice to walk in the ankle-deep water.

3. Sand Dollars

There are sand dollars (and "half-dollars") everywhere on this stretch of beach.

4. Clam Shells

There are also lots of heavy thick clam shells.

5. Driftwood

The driftwood logs can be unstable, so watch your step.

6. Driftwood Fort

Kids often build forts of driftwood on the beach.

7. Historical Signs

There are interpretive signs telling you about the history of the area near the parking lot.
