This is the place to go for great views and a walk on the beach! The Jetty helps to protect you from the wind but you can still fly a kite!

The jetty itself is pretty cool with the waves crashing on it. This small beach seems to be popular for weddings, but I sure wouldn't want to be married there. There were at least 100 dead seagulls laying on the beach in various stages of decay. Not sure if they died being slammed into the jetty or what? But it... More

My husband and I love the jetty!! Perfect for storm watching with waves crashing against the stone barrier and splashing high above as you sit snuggled in the safety of your car or on a warm summer day with crystal blue skies and brown pelican overhead! (Be sure to bring binoculars if you have them.) The beach is only a... More

If you enjoy vistas then you will like the jetti, it is designed to act as a break water between the Pacific Ocean and Grays Harbor. When you are at the jetty you have a great view across Grays Harbor to the east toward Aberdeen and Westport to the south. Do NOT let your children play on the jetty, nor... More

Loved the beach. Very clean. A fun area for kids to play in. It was quiet the day we were there. Would recommend it for anyone who wants to see the ocean & not get wet! Water is COLD!!

We always drive to the North Jetty when we are at Ocean Shores. Cars are not allowed to drive on the beach here and there are less people. We look for star fish and other sea creatures stuck to the big rocks of the jetty. You can fish off of the jetty or look for seals and whales. We put... More

I was a little worried about taking kids to a beach where currents and temps wouldn't allow swimming...but everyone loved it! We started out just walking the beach and collecting shells and sand dollars...just beautiful coast and a darker yet soft sand I had never seen before. Several vendors offer horseback riding right on the beach. There are several kite... More

The jetty has big rocks you can climb and a beach you can walk or splash in the ocean. Usually very windy most all of the time regardless of the weather but still worth the trip to the jetty if you are in Ocean Shores.

We had no idea how cold the beach and water were but the view is worth the goosebumps. Take a kite, it is perfect for flying and a cooler with a picnic lunch.
