a remote, rugged beauty
Summary: Shi Shi Beach is the textbook definition for the Olympic Wilderness Coast. The sandy landscape is pristine, the rugged sea stacks are massive, the tide pools are full of life, and you feel as if you're in the middle of the wilderness. A muddy, 2 mile hike through the Makah Reservation forestry leads you to the Olympic National Park boundary and Shi Shi Beach. From the beach, proceed another 2 miles South to reach Point of the Arches, one of the best beach displays on the Peninsula. During low tide, walk amongst towering sea stacks and explore the colorful tide pools.
