Buried Treasures

People of all ages love to comb the beaches looking for treasures, anything from sand dollars, shells, sea glass, and agates to fishing debris and Japanese glass fishing floats.

Further south in Grays Harbor, explore the Cranberry Coast Scenic Byway, named in honor of the tart berry farmed in bogs. Cranberries once grew wild here, and the wild beauty of the Pacific is what this scenic byway is all about. Fly a kite, hook a salmon or catch a wave along this 48 mile maritime route.

Westport

Westport is a cozy little beach town, true to its roots and maritime heritage. Visitors will enjoy exploring the local seafood markets, restaurants, and beach-themed shops sprinkled throughout this seaside town, offering a little something for everyoneincluding locally caught fresh and smoked seafood, candy shops, and of course, ice cream. A short walk down the docks, and you'll get a sense of the lively marina district. Watch the commercial fishing boats coming and going or drop your fishing line or crab pots. In the summer, head to the docks for the opportunity to purchase seafood directly from the local fishermen.

Every year people from around the world come to Westport for its world-class sportfishing. Fishing put Westport on the map, and salmon is one of the most exciting sport fish ever known. The Westport charter fleet's seasoned crews guide people to fantastic fishing experiences that include Salmon, Halibut, Rockfish, Lingcod, Crab, and Albacore Tuna. All ages and levels of experience are welcome.

A whale watching or birdwatching charter is also a thrilling way to get out on the water.

California Gray Whales can be seen off the Washington coast every year in March, April, and May. If you're interested in seabirds, take a charter boat offshore to view unusual species like puffins, shearwaters, stormpetrels, skuas, and if you're lucky, albatross. People don't often think about surfing in Washington's cold waters, but Westport is recognized as one of the most popular surfing destinations in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. There are three main surf breaks, which can accommodate every skill level from beginner through advanced. The consistency of surfable waves and the frequency of clean surf combined with convenient access gives surfers a reason to take the easy drive to the coast.

All maritime lovers will enjoy visiting the Westport Maritime Museum, a former Coast Guard Station, and the Grays Harbor Lighthouse - the tallest lighthouse in Washington with a 360° view.

If you're looking to disconnect and recharge, Westport offers miles and miles of easily accessible beaches for walking, beachcombing, wading in the water, kite flying, or just relaxing in the sand. Looking for solitude, find your special spot to sit and watch the waves, keeping an eye out for migrating seabirds, whales, and other local wildlife. Gorgeous summer sunsets and exciting winter storm watching make the beach popular year-round.

WASHINGTON'S TALLEST LIGHTHOUSE

Discover Washington's tallest lighthouse! Grays Harbor Lighthouse stands 107-feet tall. Visitors can climb the 135 steps up to the lantern room to take in unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and the nearby town of Westport.

Long Beach Kite Festival

For colorful fun in the sun, don't miss the annual summer Kite Festival! You can join the fun with your own kite flying adventure on the longest beach on the West Coast.

Long Beach Peninsula

With 28 miles of sandy spit, and the longest beach on the West Coast, the Long Beach Peninsula is THE place for beachcombing, chasing waves, pounding surf and so much more! This popular year-round destination is sought out not only for its expansive beach, but also for its historic lighthouses, small towns and working waterfronts, kite festival, and abundant fresh seafood-Willapa Bay oysters, Dungeness crab, butter clams and salmon to name a few. Talented chefs are drawn to the region for its abundance.

A family favorite for generations, the lively town of Long Beach offers colorful shops, renowned restaurants, an arcade, go- carts and a great boardwalk above tall grasses.

Three miles south of Long Beach, visit the port town of Ilwaco with its working waterfront lined with art galleries, boutique hotels, fishing charters and a summer Saturday market.

South of Ilwaco at the southern base of the peninsula, explore Cape Disappointment State Park and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. Don't miss the two nearby lighthouses, Cape Disappointment and North Head, which
