Great beach for just walking and exploring --- thinking, enjoying the gorgeous views, shelling, etc. Beautiful views of mountains on practically all sides, include Mt Rainier and the sound. Always a lot of boat activity, float planes, cargo ships and if you are lucky, seals and sea lions swimming off shore.

We spent a delightful morning shelling on the beach here. We came at low tide and found a bounty of shells. The light house is really cute too. This may be the highlight of this trip to Washington.

The beach is great. Kids have a blast digging. Water FREEZING. Good driftwood. Smallest lighthouse I have ever seen. Parking lot gets full fast, go early!

Lovely views of Puget Sound and fresh sea air! The lighthouse is pretty average to others in the area but was open and docents were available to answer questions. There was a nice little assortment of artifacts from its history, but the real reason to go is just to stretch your legs and gaze out at the sea. Probably a... More

A very serene spot to enjoy the Puget Sound nature with one of the oldest Lighthouse in the background, a lovely beach with great shells and sand dollars for collection, a great wild berry bush trail to keep the kids busy, a great place to bird watch while having an ice-cream... there are benches for quite time if inclined to...

Point no Point beach is a perfect place to take a walk on the beach or to stop for a quick picnic. The beach is great for looking for shells, playing in the sand, or spotting seals. My kids had a great time running around the beach and playing in the water. We decided to stay on the beach for... More

Point No Point got its name in 1841 when Charles Wilkes of the U.S. Exploring Expedition found a spit of land that turned out to be much smaller than he expected. The Indians called it Hahd-skus, meaning long nose. It extends east from the northern tip of the Kitsap Peninsula over a quarter of a mile, ending at the junction... More

Spent several nights at the Lighthouse Keeper's cottage, just a hundred yards from the Lighthouse itself. The building is maintained by the US Lighthouse Society and was a wonderful way to ring in the New Year. The home is beautifully restored and has plenty of room for two couples or a family of 4. The unexpected bonus was viewing Orcas... More

Out of the way at the end of a road, this park/beach/lighthouse is a beautiful place to spend a day. Terrific views, a sandy beach, and of course, the lighthouse. The lighthouse itself is only open a short time, but the rest of the area is worth the trip.

This was a little light house and nice little piece of history. It has parking, but have to walk a ways to the lighthouse, It was fun to see the views.
