Love walking this beach

It's always different and a good opportunity to see different wildlife. How can you go wrong with a walk in the beach?

Typical jetty with lots of rocks and lots of water. Waves crashing on a windy day. Ya sorta gotta go....I mean you're not really visiting Ocean Shores unless you go see the jetty and Gray's Harbor inlet. But it won't blow your mind....just a nice place to visit.

We always try to make time for a trip to the jetty. There is just something exciting about it. You should know there is only a porta-potty available. If you walk just a little down the beach you will also experience the power of erosion

This is a great place to access the beach - except during high tide. This is also a good vantage point to see the beach erosion at Ocean Shores up close. There is a house that has lost most of its back yard to the erosion.

At the far south end of the sand bar that Ocean Shores sits on, you'll find ample parking and a sand road (100 feet) to the beach along-side the north jetty. This place is spectacular when the sea is rough, but watch out because the jetty boulders can be slippery and somewhat dangerous. The kids can play on the gentle... More
