What can I see and d0 at Otis Perkins County Park?

The long open stretch of beach that faces west towards San Juan Island is starkly beautiful. The beach is the western edge of the spit that protects Fisherman Bay. 

  • The narrow county road that runs next to the beach is treated like an unofficial walking trail, so watch for pedestrians. 
  • The wetlands that run along the edge of the Bay are a great place to spot all kinds of birds. 
  • During the summer the warm open beach is a great place to soak in some sun, away from the crowds. 
  • There are stunning views south towards the Olympics.
