Cast your cares to the salty breezes while venturing onto this wide beach of sand and polished stones. A delightful hike any time of year, Spencer Spit is a dynamic environment always in flux. Amble along this protruding point in Lopez Sound watching for playful seals, probing shorebirds, surf-riding waterfowl, and majestic eagles hovering above. The hike is short, but you’ll want to linger long, for Spencer Spit is one of the finest beaches in the San Juans.
