Easy, Accessible Beauty -- and GREAT crab! – Foodies and nature lovers will find it's worth a Sunday drive to Dungeness Spit for an easy beach walk and a tasty dinner celebrating the world's most famous crab, named for this beautiful, romantic stretch of beach where they are harvested. My favorite time of year to go is in September during the Crab Festival, when you can catch, eat, and celebrate crab, nature and life in this "slice of Americana" town where life is leisurely and never tires of this great debate : bisque vs. chowder!
Cut off from civilization on all sides, it's a saltwater beach walk extraordinaire. – In Short
A 5.5-mile curved sand-finger formed by the Dungeness River, it's hidden from view by the massive, sandy cliffs separating Clallam County's rural farmlands from the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Walking its sandy stretches encourages the sensation of leaving the mainland for a private marine observatory. Along the Juan de Fuca side as far as the lighthouse is a pinic area of green lawns, fresh artisian drinking water and a clean restroom.
