Iverson Spit has a nice little parking area where you can choose to walk on the short loop through the woods or also along the beach. Great place for flying a kite.

We enjoy beach hikes so we stopped in here. The beach is very easily accessible, and very hikeable. The beach is sandy, and easy to hike. Te views are interesting. We were there at low tide and the large mud flat was interesting to see....More

Great for kids to play in the sand and on the drift wood. Short Hobbit Trail is nice for hiking. It's a sandy alternative to the rockier beaches at Camano island State Park and Cama Beach. Parking can be tight on nice summer days.

This is a hidden gem. The beach is filled with driftwood (secret forts), and sand to run in without a lot of rocks. The bird life in the marsh area is wonderful. Trails take you on a magical journey in the preserve.

There aren't many sandy beaches on the island, but this is a great one. When the tide is out there is lots of sand to play in, and when it's in it is still pretty shallow, so great for wading or playing in. There are...More

This is a great place to bring young kids. There are logs to navigate, but after that it is a pretty clear beach to let them be free on. I have found some great sea glass on this beach as well. I do think there...More

Jeez, I worry if I brag too much about this place, it may lose its private feel. Our favorite beach on Camano. Love the hiking trail, and just hanging out on driftwood watching sea-life and birds. Also, visitors seem to take good care not to...More

One of my family and friends' favorite parks, this is a total gem for its different beach layout. It's first, a county park, and therefore free parking/no admission fee, for visitors who just want a lovely beach experience but maybe have money constraints. Second, it's...More

It's hard to say. There is always a lot of driftwood here. Sometimes you can find a cleared path to the beach, and others you will need to climb. The walking trail is level, but it is not directly on the beach.
