Visited one of the sand buggy rental and ride places and took a large sand buggy out on the dunes. It was nice but would have liked it better next time on a smaller buggy and faster. Dunes are pretty high!

Beautiful beak and a great place for a walk in the sand. Kids would love on a warm day, but it is the Northwest and the wind can be chilly at times. Definitely worth a look.

Great view of the nearby lighthouse. ATVs are allowed in this area. The dunes, the big rocks in the water and just the coastline itself is awesome.

It was hard to escape from the noise and total pointlessness of the OHVs. If you find the places where this is possible, you will enjoy spectacular natural phenomena.

Wow, great place to spend the day or even just drive through. Beautiful dunes and great for ATV. If just visiting drive through and don't hesitate to stop at any of the coastal parking lots and climb the dunes for incredible ocean views.

Buggy is $400 and 4 wheeler were $200. Have fun. Get the insurance. 1 of the party did not turned over and was out $300 for minor damage. They set the prices, you get the idea.
