The OPC has worked to raise awareness about the challenges to coastal access on the Strait and promote responsible recreation for several years. We recently published a beach access and camping guide to the Olympic Peninsula as part of our larger effort to promote best practices and #RESPECTaccess, #PROTECTaccess.
Many beaches that you are welcome to explore are managed by the tribes, the county, and the state. Other beaches are privately owned and access is granted by the permission of these private landowners. All of these spots are unique in both their ecological offerings and the partnerships between the stewards of and the visitors to these places – that includes all of us! By following a few simple guidelines, we can continue to enjoy these amazing places and preserve access for years to come.
