  • Lovely little beach but the petroglyphs were quite hard to spot. The trick was suppose to be pour water on them to make them easier to see, rubbish, we couldn't see them at all when we did this!  more »
  • I love stopping here and looking around the beach. The petroglyphs are amazing. I would suggest talking to a local before you go to the beach. This is a must see.  more »

  • Petroglyph Beach is a short walk from the city of Wrangell. Busses are usually available but not required. The beach is an historical site as there are numerous petroglyphs (rock carvings). These are NOT handicap accessible. The rocks are strewn about the beach and reaching them requires climbing over rough and slippery rocks. The carvings are roughly 6000 years old. There is a mystery to the carvings as they exhibit characters more commonly found in South American carvings. To better view the carvings, lightly sprinkle water over them. It is absolutely worth the effort to see these.
