Needed a place to take my daughter for a walk on the beach. Since my ankle is injured I can't walk on the sand but I can wheelchair down to the beach. We both got what we needed and we had a great time.

This is a really nice beach on Chuckanut Drive. It's a bit hard to find, but the trailhead is just south of Larabee's main park entrance. We parked on the side of the road and hiked down. I'm not sure how well young kids would...More

I love hiking here they have a lot of little hidden things along the coast and a ton of little private beaches.

I loved laying on the sand at Clayton Beach, and sharing a picnic lunch with a friend. The sound of the water lapping at the shore made it a very relaxing, tranquil location.

My husband and I often pack a picnic basket and hang out at Clayton Beach. Our dog loves to play in the water and we enjoy tide pooling when the tide is low. Best place in Belingham to find beautiful purple starfish. I just wish...More

I live in Bellingham and visit Clayton Beach several times a year. I love walking south on the beach at low tide, pas the curious old pilings. Check the tides before you go. The kids love to climb around on the rock formations and listen...More
