Shi Shi Beach
Shi Shi Beach is an amazing place. Protected from development by wilderness designations, more than 75 miles of coastline remains in tact. Oppurtunites are endless for wildlife viewing here. The Makah Tribe has recently rebuilt the trail to Shi Shi Beach from its reservation, making it easier to access than before.
