Exploring the Olympic Peninsula Part II: Crescent Beach/ Salt Creek/ Tongue Point

This is the entrance. GPS will try to take you straight, but the entrance was closed the day we went. If you continue to the left, there will be three parking areas on the right side of the road. Pick one! Past them is a private/paid area. After that it gets a bit tricky to turn around.

Warning. This is one you will want to check tides for before going. This was low, low tide and everything was visible. High tide adds 7ft of water, and I suspect this whole area will be under water!

The wildlife was fantastic!

At Tongue Point, there was an underwater cave where the waves would come in and explode!

Then we followed a trail back to the truck and found ourselves in a WWII Fort.

As we were leaving, Jared noticed a gravel road that said “Discovery Pass Required.” That usually means it’s a State Park type area. So we followed it up, and up, and up into a cloud bank. Perfect Washington fog.

  • My Rating for Crescent Beach 5/5 stars
    1. Absolutely check it out!
    2. Check the tide charts before you go
    3. Take your phone for pictures, or in case you get lost on the trail, it’s not well marked
