Cattle Point is a lovely park area with spectacular views of Puget Sound. Take time to walk to the lighthouse. This would be a lovely place to take a picnic lunch.

I enjoyed the hiking here but for scenery, English Camp is much more interesting. The beach is very rocky and has a lot of wood.

I love this park of victoria. Quaint, rugged and the views are breathtaking. Just driving through the local neighborhood is always a treat. My dog loves to do a walk here. Plenty to sniff in the sea air

We researched when the low tides were this summer on our honeymoon and went to Cattle Point to look under rocks and kelp. We had a blast! There are some very rare stauromedusae that call this point home; that was a super find. Also, lots of limpets, sea cucumbers, blood stars, anemones... This is the best tidepooling we found on the San Juans.

This is a very easy drive; (although any place on the island is) from Friday Harbor; especially if you are touring American Camp as well. Good views and whale watching opportunities although we were about 15 minutes too late to see the whales ~ oh well; still worth the trip!
