Washington Beaches


Washington State has 157 miles of varied and interesting coastline and not all is nice sandy beaches.


Ocean Shores has more than thirty miles of wide sandy beaches that are visited by 3M visitors a year. For those who like corporate hotels, Days Inn, Comfort Inn, Ramada Inn and the Best Western Lighthouse are all here. If you prefer local color and flavor there are many available. It is advisable to wear a wetsuit for swimming and a little wind protection might make sunbathing more comfortable. The average temperature in summer is in the 60’s with low precipitation, in the winter the temps are in the 40’s and 50’s with much more precipitation. Might be good to have SunShower raingear from Lands End for those rainy days from October to March. Summertime is the sun time and horseback riding on this inviting beach is possible through Chenois Creek Horse Rentals, Honey Pearl Ranch and Rising Star Horse Rental. Ride or drive on the beach with a bicycle, moped or your car from Labor Day until April 15. Golf can be played two different ways, miniature golf or the public 18 hole Ocean Shores Golf course. Why not try clamming? This is another activity in this small tourist spot as well as viewing a very visible shipwreck.
