A short hike down a path from the parking lot to the beach, but WELL worth it!
This is one of the most photographed beaches in Washington State and you will see why. It is well worth the drive to get there!
If you are up for adventure, have an extra pair of shoes in your car, but wear ones that you really don't care about getting wet. Then when you get to the beach, head north. There is a small stream/river that comes into the ocean. Usually there are a few logs across it, but not real stable. This is where your 'get wet shoes' come in. Once your cross the logs, you can take a short hike farther up the beach, away from the crowds. This will give you more options for your awesome photos!
