Take a stroll along Ediz Hook
Only a few minutes from downtown Port Angeles, you will find Ediz Hook, a 3-mile-long sand spit enhanced by rock that juts into the Strait of Juan de Fuca to form Port Angeles’ deepwater harbor. This is an ideal spot to view the city and the Olympic Mountains rising in the background. Public beaches offer beachcombing opportunities and places to view ships traveling through the Strait. Harbor seals, orcas and seabirds can be spotted from the hook. Access is via Marine Drive through the McKinley Paper Co. plant.

KITE-FLYING AT WEST END PARK
Enjoy a sunny day at West End Park
Port Angeles’ 1.5-acre waterfront West End Park can be found along Front Street and features two beaches — one 80 feet by 200 feet, the other 80 feet by 130 feet — that fringe the shoreline. Sit on one of the benches to watch the waves roll in or see what the tide has left behind by strolling along the rocky shore. Take a moment to investigate the park’s public art sculptures. Have a picnic on the green grass, do a little bird watching or snap photos of boats moving about in the harbor. Whatever you do, be sure to relax and enjoy the view.
