This is a hidden gem that we had a great time out. The area is sandy as opposed to rocky and when the tide goes out it leave smaller pockets of water that kids of all ages can enjoy. The kids were able to go pretty far out in the water and still only be knee deep. It's a perfect... More

The entrance to get in is at the end of the road with houses to the right. Wasn't sure if we were going the right way. Cute beach and like is being said a lot of drift wood, make sure you go when the tide is out, the water was surprisingly warm, I can see why is a popular place... More

Nice and quiet. Beautiful views and lots of driftwood. Off the beaten path from regular beaches. Parking and it's free.

A small, intimate typically northwest beach, full of driftwood and all kinds of rocks and shells for exploring. Don't expect conch shells or great big recognizable ones. You'll have to look hard to find them! Previous reviewers talk about many trails, but we are not hikers. There is plenty to keep you busy in any season, or just chill out... More

Fun place to hang around on a nice sandy beach, swim and relax. Usually a little windy, so lots of people go there to fly kites! Lots of cool driftwood shelters too! You do have to be careful though because a couple years ago someone got brought out with the tide! (The coast hard got them, they where perfectly fine!)

The Iverson Spit Waterfront Preserve offers a little for everyone. It is a 120 acre area of protected coastline that has been undergoing a restoration project since 2011. There are walking trails, birding trails, marshes, views of the Cascades, sandy beaches, tidal pools, and vast areas of driftwood to explore. You can bundle up and walk in the winter or... More

This is a nice beach on Camano Island with several recreation options: birding, swimming, kayaking, hiking (try the hobbit trail), beach combing and kite boarding. I have been coming here since I was a boy and have always had a good time. Camano island is a nice place to spend a day.

Iverson Spit is one of the loveliest beaches on Camano. We go there (we live on the island) several times a year. We love its long expanse of sandy shore and the wild straggles of driftwood piled up everywhere from the seasonal tides and storms. A great place to walk your dog, access is easy and there's a small parking... More

We stayed for a week in one of the beach houses on Iverson Beach and walked a few times down to the Preserve. So, we did not use the parking areas that other reviewers have referenced. Iverson Beach Road, however is quiet and there are a few pull offs at the end of it. We visited the Preserve in high... More

My family and I took a day trip to Camano Island and Iverson Beach was our first stop. We arrived around 11 am and were able to find a parking spot but the lot is very small and I'm sure it was hard to get a spot later in the day. We walked out to the beach, what a beautiful... More
