Long Beach, Washington - Sand, Sun and Fun

Long Beach, Washington refers to both a town and a peninsula in southwestern Washington State. This long, isolated, sandy strip of land is host to several small towns - including Long Beach - and many miles of Pacific Ocean beaches. Your vacation house, townhome or condo will have easy beach access, laundry facilities, internet access and plenty of parking space.

The Beach is a Highway

The beaches on the Long Beach Peninsula are plain and sandy with very few rocky features. Beaches in Washington State are considered to be highways, and you can drive your vehicle onto the beach through a variety of access points along the peninsula, especially near Ocean Park. The beaches are generally quiet and peaceful, and they are a wonderful place for dog walking, bird and wildlife watching and kite flying.

Leadbetter Point State Park

A thirty-minute drive north of Long Beach will take you to the tip of the Long Beach Peninsula and Leadbetter Point State Park. This forested, undeveloped shoreline offers opportunities for hiking and include a national wildlife refuge and many beautiful views and photo opportunities overlooking the ocean.

Shops and Dining

Long Beach has many quaint restaurants and shopping opportunities, including gift shops, boutiques and art galleries. Fine and casual dining is available with a variety of local seafood on most menus. The center of Long Beach is anchored by a large, old-fashioned bakery which feels like stepping into an earlier time for traditional pastries, decorated cakes and other confections.

Jake the Alligator Man

Marsh’s Free Museum is a shop and museum in Long Beach that houses many antiquities, including Jake the Alligator Man. Alleged to be part human, part alligator, this mummified mystery has been on the cover of tabloids and is a regional curiosity; bumper stickers featuring his photo are a common sight across the Pacific Northwest. The museum also houses other antiques of interest, including a large collection of coin-operated Victorian music boxes and a rare violano.

Historic Oysterville

Oysterville is a quaint old sea town that thrived in the 19th century due to the many oysters in the peninsula’s Willapa Bay. However, when the railroad failed to reach Oysterville and the number of oysters decreased, the vibrant town became quiet and nearly a ghost town. Many beautifully-maintained grand houses remain with a few full-time residents. Oysterville is on the National Register of Historic Districts, and there remains one active oyster supplier in town, where you can purchase oysters and other delights from the sea.

Weather

The weather is cool during all times of the year,, and it is especially rainy and windy in the winter. The beaches have little protection from the open ocean and are generally quite windy. A vacation home with an ocean view is wonderful for watching winter storms. You will benefit from bringing rain gear with you at all times of the year in addition to waterproof boots and a kite.

How to Get There

The Long Beach Peninsula is quite isolated in southwest Washington, and it can only be reached by private car or bicycle. The nearest town with ample services is Astoria, Oregon, a 30-mile drive south of the town of Long Beach. A small airport serves Astoria, but commercial airline travel is in Portland, Oregon or Seattle, Washington. Bus service is available to Astoria, and train service is available to Longview, Washington or Portland, Oregon. Rental cars and taxi service are available in Long Beach.

Close to beach and bike trail access. Virgil and Trisha were wonderful hosts and anything you need they were happy to provide. Just need to ask them. Thanks, Virgil for all your attentiveness to our needs and supplying us with fresh towels without us asking for them. We had a great time!

Beadboard and slanted ceilings evoke cozy, cottage charm. A roomy living/dining/kitchen area provides nice communal space for reading, eating and playing card games together. Furnishings are clean, casual and not too precious, so we felt comfortable hanging out on the couches with beverages and a bowl of popcorn nearby. The location can't be beat. Walk out the door directly into town in one direction, or directly to the beach path in the other. The cottage is right next door to a used bookstore that also serves espresso and has five resident cats and two dogs, a huge plus for us as we love all of the above! Long Beach is an exceedingly friendly place, with locals eager to share tips about best places to eat or places to go hiking. We took full advantage of being within easy driving distance of two spectacular parks: Leadbetter State Park and Cape Disappointment State Park. There are trails for all hiking levels. You don't have to hike far to find seclusion in pristine forests and beaches. Finally, Noel, the owner with whom we made the cottage booking, is friendly and so easy to work with. I understand he has rental properties in other areas too, which we are likely to look into in the future. This was a vacation to remember.
