Things To Do!
Get a pair of binoculars and head over to the North Jetty for your chance to see some of the areas most magnificent creatures – whales! Watch for our Harbor’s pod of resident gray whales during season. Or try beachcombing, bird watching, bicycling, clam digging, fishing (fresh water, surf fishing, crabbing), PGA golf (Ocean Shores has Washington’s only PGA-rated championship course on the coast), horseback riding, kite-flying, hiking and wildlife viewing – and don’t forget storm watching! You can move from one activity to the next just as easy as walking down the block. Kids will find plenty to do from playing mini golf to racing go karts, visiting a video arcade, riding bikes, surfing, riding self-powered bumper boats, digging in the sand… well… you get the point. Ocean Shores has tons activities to keep you busy. And it’s a great escape for couples too.
The Ocean Shores Peninsula features six miles of public sandy beaches, approximately 170 acres at high tide. The beaches are popular for clamming (in season), jetty and surf fishing, whale watching, and seashell collecting. Horse rentals along the beach are available throughout the year. There are five public beach access points in Ocean Shores.
Did you know that Ocean Shores is home to more than 23 miles of fresh water lakes & canals? The canal system is throughout the town & is best experienced by canoe, kayak or boat. You’ll see plenty of wildlife, canal or lakefront homes.
