Point No Point Lighthouse, Hansville

Point No Point is an outcropping of land on the northeast point of the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington, the United States. It was the location of the signing of the Point No Point Treaty and is the site of the Point No Point Light. It was named by Charles Wilkes during the United States Exploring Expedition of Puget Sound in 1841.Wilkes gave the point its name because it appears much less of a promontory at close range than it does from a distance. Point No Point has been noted for its unusual place name.The marine climate ensures plenty of precipitation in winter and mild temperatures in summer. There are many productive habitats. The spit itself has sandy beaches with log jams, as well as some man-made structures for boating. Behind the beaches is a large mixed freshwater/saltwater marsh with a substantial shrub component. The waters surrounding the point react to swiftly running tides, attracting many marine bird species. And there is a somewhat sheltered bay as well.BirdwatchingPoint No Point has one of the largest birdlists of any site in Washington. The point is owned jointly by the U.S. Coast Guard (leased to Kitsap County) and a private landowner who is knowledgeable and sympathetic to birdwatchers.

  • A very cool place that offers more then what is first seen. I recommend getting out and walking the beach all the way around and back again through the trails.
  • Brought a friend up here on a whim . Its so pretty and a g3eat spot to find seashells, especiallt after a storm. Great place for photos as well.
  • Nice place to take a Sunday drive to and walk along the beach. Not spectacular as far as light houses go, but if you're into lighthouse history, I'm sure you'd find it interesting.
  • Perfect day trip option. They usually have the light house open but you'll have more fun walking and exploring the beaches.
  • Don't miss the wetland trail. It includes a viewing platform and stairs to the bluff. The park is a great place for spotting all sorts of marine wildlife including eagles, herons, otters, seals, and an occasional whale.
