Dungeness Spit

Dungeness Spit Professional Review and Guide

"Hike one of Washington’s best saltwater strolls and the longest coastal spit in the continental United States. A narrow strip of sand, dune, and beached logs, Dungeness Spit extends more than 5 miles straight into the strait. It’s also the centerpiece of a national wildlife refuge, so expect to see a lot of birds and seals along the way.

Closed at sunset. Dogs prohibited. Hike may be difficult in highest tides. Pack your binoculars too, as the bird-watching is supreme. Over 250 species have been recorded on the spit and in Dungeness Bay, including many that are endangered or threatened. Marbled murrelets, harlequin ducks, and snowy plovers frequent the area."
