The Washington Coast
The peninsula area of the Washington coast is the most remote, pristine coastline in the lower 48 states. It is mostly inaccessible with the exception of a few areas.
The 900 person town of Neah Bay is the home of the Makah Indian Reservation. The area surrounding the town is very scenic, especially when experienced on the water. The area is inside the Strait of Juan de Fuca, giving it substantial protection from rough waters, and offering excellent fishing opportunities for small boaters. Hiking is popular on the Cape Flattery trail which is less than a mile long. It offers scenic views of nature.
Kalaloch is a small community located on the bluffs above the beach
on highway 101. There are several trails that lead to the beach, providing
breathtaking views. The area has campgrounds where people can stay,
as well as the increasingly popular Kalaloch Lodge. The National Parks
Service has a 170 spot campground, and there are other smaller campgrounds
in the area as well.
The Olympic Peninsula area of the Washington Coast is perhaps the most scenic coastal area in the country outside Alaska. It is the least visited by tourists due to its lack of commercialization. People who enjoy nature and getting away from civilization will find this area very much to their liking.
