Agate Beach County Park

Agate Beach County Park is a delightful day park at the southern end of Lopez Island. The rock beach may not have any more agates but the colorful rocks look like jewels when the waves wash over them. Read More

What can I see and do at Agate Beach County Park?

  • The high bank above the beach has several picnic tables on a small grassy lawn.
  • The Beach faces west which means this is a lovely spot for an evening picnic. 
  • The Beach itself is rocky and steep but when the tide is low the sandy seafloor is exposed and you can walk out to the nearby rocky island. 
  • The open, west facing, bay gets some of the most amazing wind and waves during storms. Locals often park here to appreciate the power of the sea.
