Spend a Day at the Beach in Ocean Shores, WA

A stay in one of our charming Seabrook vacation rentals would only be complete with an Ocean Shores beach trip! Less than 20 minutes south of Seabrook, the quaint town of Ocean Shores is best known for its serene views of the Pacific Ocean and an abundance of freshwater inlets. Try exploring all four beaches on our list. Or you could just pick one to lounge at for the entire afternoon. 

The Ocean Shores, WA, beaches are perfect for many exciting outdoor activities. Dig for clams during the on-season, wander down the sand on a morning horseback ride, or fly your kite in the salty winds.

The 4 Best Places for a Day at the Beach in Ocean Shores

1. Ocean City State Park

Enjoy the beautiful Ocean City State Park with beach access and walking trails through the Ocean Shores wilderness. Two trails feature outdoor courts to play badminton, volleyball, and croquet. Do as the locals do and try clam digging during the on-season. Because this stretch of beach is technically considered part of the state highway, cars can roll right up on the park sand.

2. Damon Point

Rock and shell collectors will love exploring Damon Point, an ideal spot to find agate gemstones, jasper gemstones, and occasionally sea glass. Surrounded by the Pacific on three sides, Damon Point is also an excellent beach in Ocean Shores for bird viewing. This stretch of sand is home to several nesting birds. This location is your best bet to spot some rare fowls. One of our favorite birds to watch for in the winter is the rare snowy plover. You’ll also encounter varieties of shorebirds, bald eagles, and possibly even harbor seals relaxing on the rocks!

3. Oyhut Wildlife Recreation Area

Near Damon Point is another coveted spot for avid bird watchers at Oyhut Wildlife Recreation Area. Named a part of the Great Washington State Birding Trail by the Audubon Society, Oyhut is home to blue herons, pelicans, and more. Walk along the shore and take in the beauty of the surrounding wetlands and sand dunes. On a clear day, look across the ocean to witness a perfect view of Mount Rainier in the distance. Though there are no official trails here, this 683-acre beach park offers plenty of opportunities to discover Ocean Shores’ unique wildlife. Because cars aren’t permitted on this beach, you can expect a quieter, calmer atmosphere.

4. North Jetty

Though the ocean current makes it too dangerous to swim here, North Jetty is a beautiful beach in Ocean Shores. If you’re traveling with young children, a trip to North Jetty may be too dangerous as there are many rocks and the landscape is a bit wild. However, you’ll have an unparalleled ocean view from this stretch of undeveloped land dotted with driftwood.
