Our faltering attempts to find good birding and beach areas led us to ultimately visit the North Jetty. While it was not exceptional, it was a lovely space. We were able to see a remarkable cluster of shorebirds swarming off the coast. We didn't have good rock-walking footwear on at the time, so we didn't climb out the jetty, but... More

Went around 11AM 7/5/15 and for a holiday weekend it was not that crowded. Parking was easy; there are some stalls at the "end of the road" of all the beachfront condos and homes. There are porta potties on the beach but they were so disgusting I refused to use them; they were full to the brim with waste. I'm... More

The Jetty is a place to fill the soul. Water, crashing on the rocks, is mesmerizing and so relaxing. We took our two dogs along to explore the beach. They had a ball trying to catch seagulls and sniffing every piece of driftwood and clumps of grass. Can't wait till we are back at the Jetty. Currently in Indiana but... More

We went early before leaving town and the beach was not busy at all. We were surprised to see people car parking on the beach. It is a popular place and we can definitely see why.

This is a very nice, large beach at the end of the western shore of Ocean Shores. There is lots of room for lounging or beach fun.

Really liked the sea critters that live amongst the jetty. Great to explore and look around.....just be careful not to fall!

There was decent parking, but I wouldn't expect that during the peak of the summer season. No picnic tables, just rocks to climb on and see Westport from.

if you come to ocean shores, drive a little southwards to this "corner" . Drive slowly, because you might not want to get too close to the deers which will inevitably be on the roadside/ divider. The thing I liked most about OS is the sea mist on a cloudy weather. While visiting north jetty and way back, we found... More

Great place to watch for whales and walk the beach. Lots of fire wood and looks like fires can be made along the Jetty. Lots of room to picnic and relax on the sandy beach.
