This was pretty much a bust as there was little to see or do just an isolated point on the southern part of the island

Cattle point is a nice walk we took one afternoon, not too challenging and it did not take very long. Pretty view.

We picnicked here and it was lovely. We also walked out to the lighthouse, which I would definitely recommend. There are some rocks and tide pools there that you can explore as well. It is a beautiful part of San Juan Island.

This beach is covered with large piles of driftwood. It is also a great place for rock hounds, there are a lot of agates.

We drove to Cattle Point and hiked to the lighthouse. It was a very short walk through a grass field and from the lighthouse we could hike down to the rocky shore. The kids loved looking for crabs and exploring the shore. The adventure did not take long and was worth the time!

Views were a lot like Big Sur but few crowds and lovely weather. Great spot to comb the beach and have a picnic. We actually biked there from Roche Harbor.

The drive along the Cattle Point Road was really scenic and one can halt at the American Camp, Jakle's Lagoon, Lighthouse and the trail. Shall explore this place again next time.

Beautiful views of the sea and surrounding islands from a bluff above the sea. Lots of wildlife spotted on drive to Cattle Point - red fox, bald eagle, deer, gulls. But it was very windy and cold there. Some nicely painted houses nearby and an interesting looking cove farther down the road.
