“If not so foggy, sure a great place to be...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

I guess the weather was what is the stereotyped (is it always this way?!) North Pacific Ocean weather...windy, foggy, and cool...even in July. Hard to see much in the water, but was pleased to see a few seals swimming in the water. Sadly lost a purple Kodak Easyshare camera that fell in the rocks (no way to retrieve it, many tears by my child over this!!)...if anyone finds it, love to have it back, even if it doesn't work..just would feel right, as Santa brought it to our house.
Sorry, diverting from the topic- the Jetty- if not so foggy sure we would have had a different experience. Mother Nature was at work here in her way...did enjoy the visit though.

“Wild & Wooley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The view from there is breathtaking. It's fun to watch ships large and small maneuver thru the waterway and always hoping to see a whale. The deer are everywhere, and so unafraid of people. Hint, they love a tasty apple. The crashing waves are fantastic, Mother Nature at her best.

“Nice place to walk and see the surf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

One has to park what may be a long walk for those who are less able, but it's well worth the walk. One sees what's in the picture and, if up to it, can stroll north along the beach, a flat and relaxing walk. The surf will be to your left, as might be a boat or two on a calm day. Remember, however, that you have to return the way you came, so budget your energy accordingly. I also didn't notice any bathroom facilities, but perhaps I missed them by the parking area. There are a variety of shells, partial and otherwise, and also beware that some pet owners don't pick up. There are some large pieces of driftwood along the beach to sit on.

“A must destination when visiting Ocean Shores”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

There is magic here, if you are open to it. The ocean, bar and beach in one spot. Nature's power and beauty are there to be experienced and enjoyed on a grand scale. The sounds, the motion and beauty that make the senses come alive. This is a place where you can find yourself, a relationship, peace and maybe a life changing experience. Nature is beautiful and moving, come see how it moves you.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

You really can't go wrong with any of the beaches on Ocean Shores, but the seeing the waves crash on the rocks was awe inspiring.
