What can I see and do at Eagle Cove County Park?

This sandy beach and protected cove faces south with gorgeous views of the Olympic Mountains and Strait of Juan de Fuca. 

  • The beach is often quite busy during the summer, with skim boarders, lounging teenagers and kids playing in the sand. 
  • It can also be randomly deserted depending on the time of day and day of the week. 
  • Bring binoculars to spot soaring eagles, and seals resting on nearby rocks. 
  • There is a small grassy area above the beach where you can safely picnic without eating too much sand.

Where is Eagle Cove County Park?

The Park is just west of South Beach. From downtown Friday Harbor head out on Cattle Point Road then take a right at Eagle Cove Drive. The parking area will be on your left once the road turns to run along the shore.

When is Eagle Cove County Park open?

The Park is open all year long for daytime use. Strolling along the quiet sandy beach during the winter can be soothing and energizing. Looking across at the towering Olympics covered with low clouds or drenched in snow can be the perfect inspiration to go back inside and curl up with a warm beverage.
