Ocean Shores Washington


Ocean Shores resides on the Point Brown peninsula just opposite Westport on the coast. It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Seattle and literally millions of people make the trek from all over the country to come enjoy this beautiful little Washington treasure.

Water surrounds this town on all sides except a little strip of land heading to the north. It is close to a major fishing hub (Westport) and residents enjoy swimming, nearby hiking, boutique shopping and more.
