Take in breathtaking sunsets, watch winter storms, go beachcombing, surf, take leisurely walks or bike rides, and so much more up and down the Washington Coast with Seabrook as your adventure hub. From Seabrook’s pristine beach (Mocrocks) to the northern and southern beach accesses close by, taking short trips exploring the coastline is a spectacular way to reconnect with the ocean and natural surroundings.
Please note that some beach accesses may be closed throughout the year due to maintenance or possible flooding and parking passes are required at state parks.
Staying in Seabrook means having walk-on beach access from three different oceanside neighborhoods available year-round that lead to Mocrocks beach. Whether you opt to head to the beach from the Elk Creek neighborhood, Pacific Glen neighborhood, or North Glen neighborhood, the beach is always just a short walk away.
Just 1.5 miles north of Seabrook in the quaint town of Pacific Beach is the Pacific Beach State Park. The year-round camping park does not have drive-on beach access, but does have public parking spaces and restrooms available.
Heading south of Seabrook 2.6 miles has drive-on beach access available. The wide open spaces are perfect for sightseeing, letting your four-legged friends run free, or clam digging. This beach approach also has a public restroom available for use.
There are several beach accesses in and near Copalis Beach, along with the Griffiths-Priday State Park 7.7 miles south of Seabrook that is perfect for exploring with the family. Head to Ocean City on 2nd Street for drive-on beach access.
Head north on Highway 109 up to Analyde Gap, just a short 2 mile drive from Seabrook where drive-on access is available.
An additional drive-on beach access onto Mocrocks beach is 3.5 north through the quaint town of Moclips.
Ocean Shores Beach Accesses
Ocean Shores is located 15.5 miles from Seabrook with several drive-on beach accesses available, as well as the popular walk-on beach access points, Damon Point, the North Jetty, and Ocean City State Park. Drive-on beach access roads are available on State Route 115, the Chance A La Mer beach approach in the middle of the town, the Pacific Boulevard access, the Ocean Lake Way access, and Taurus Boulevard.
Tips For Driving On Washington State Beaches
- Make sure you are aware of the tides.
- Do not drive on soft, dry sand. Stick to the more compact, wet sand to avoid getting stuck.
- Do not drive through the dune grass, it degrades the coastal environment and there is likely wildlife that calls the dunes home.
- All Washington State rules of the road apply, reckless driving is illegal.
- Do not go over the max speed limit on the beach of 25 miles per hour.
- Watch out for potential road hazards, such as driftwood and standing water.
- Driving on the sand is always at your own risk, becoming stuck can mean large towing fees.
- Make sure to avoid clam beds and be watchful for wildlife.
