    Instead of the cold, gray and dreary beach that I had imagined, this ended up being one of the best beaches I've ever been to. When I visited the sky was clear and the cool air, which I'd thought be a...  more »

    We did the day hike to Shi Shi beach. The hike is easy until you get to the spot to get down to the beach. There are ropes to help you navigate down the trail. It's a short descent and doable for most...  more »

    I've now been to this beach 5 times because I love it there! A level but muddy 2-mile hike to the descent to the beach, then 2.5 miles of sandy beach with beautiful seastacks with arches and caves in ...  more »

Where to stay in Olympic National Park

Many visitors to Olympic National Park choose to pitch a tent at one of 16 campgrounds, many of which stay open throughout the year. The park also offers a mix of lodge rooms, motel rooms, and cabins thanks to two lodges and two resorts. On the Pacific Coast, the Kalaloch Lodge stands as the most isolated of these. If you prefer to rest your head outside the park, consider staying in Port Townsend. This artsy waterside community northeast of the park offers plenty of inns and bed and breakfasts, but they fill up quickly in summer, so reserve ahead if possible. Port Angeles sits a bit closer to the park and offers more functional accommodations in the form of motels and hotels, though you'll also find waterfront inns and cottages in the area. Communities on the park's western side offer a rustic vibe, but they also take more time to get to if you're coming from Seattle.
