Camp at First Beach
Washington › First Beach, La Push
Added by Ian Tyley
Beach camping. Wildlife. Car accessible. Great surf.
La Push is an absolutely magical place to stay. Experience the tranquility and natural beauty of the rugged coastline of the mighty Pacific. It's a wonderful place to walk on the beach and take photos, especially of the offshore islands, enormous driftwood, and sunsets. Lots of resident seals, birds, and even whales.
Enjoy the surf and watch shorebirds, eagles and seals. First Beach is a mile-long crescent known for surfing-size waves and great whale watching, especially from February through April. The sound of crashing waves and an approaching winter storm provide the ideal natural soundtrack. First Beach is part of the 57 miles of wild coastline on the Olympic Peninsula, the longest such stretch outside of Alaska.
Definitely one place not to be missed!

Growing up meters from the beach it was no surprise that my love for photography began in and around the ocean. My consistent drive to get up every morning is fueled by the excitement and enjoyment of capturing visionary photographs of things that inspire me, whilst having a ton of fun along the way. I love the feeling adventure photography has given me, to explore new places and strive to capture the outdoors. I hope to inspire people through my work.Follow
