We visited during a very windy and rainy period at the end of March and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves because we adapted to the weather. We brought full rain gear, including pants, and rubber boots. Our hotel lent us bicycles to ride on the paved path paralleling the beach toward Ilwaco. We could barely ride into the blustery wind but sped back when returning. Whenever the rain let up we ventured onto the beach, again bucking high winds but enjoying dramatic skies and crashing surf. We also took our car onto the beach (it's legally a state highway) and gingerly drove on the sand a little. We saw one truck dare to enter the surf and escape--not recommended!!!
The whole peninsula is very well set up as a family friendly resort--few artificial amusements but lots of sea and sand to enjoy. There's a bounty of good restaurants and a variety of styles of accommodations, as well as the usual gift and snack shops.
