We were there late in the afternoon. The view of the water from the overlooks is great. As the sun sank, the sky and water turned pink and blue - very pretty. Close to Sequim. Good way to end the day.

This is a five-mile spit of sand that sticks out into the entrance to Puget Sound. But if you're not up for the long walk to out to the lighthouse, you can still see Mt. Baker (on a clear day) from any part of the beach. The beach is accessed through a forest path that takes about 15-20 minutes, then descends to the shore. There are plenty of huge driftwood tree trunks strewn about like toothpicks, to find a quiet private spot for a nap (if it's sunny) and there are birds to watch, deer everywhere, and probably whales if you are there at the right time of year.

Great beach. We didn't walk out to the end of the spit on this this trip but will on the next visit. The walk through the forest was peaceful with interesting info signs along the way. Great place to bring kids that need to get some exercise!

It is a very beautiful and interesting place to explore. We loved the hiking and seeing Dungeness Spit area. The lighthouse is charming and interesting.

After the 1st mile on the spit, we got tired and turned around. Frequency of seeing animals dependent if you are there during the prime migratory season (Spring and Fall). Make sure you check the tide cycle.
