Spring is here – and that means sunny weekends and swimming blue skies. But what will you do once you’re caught up on all the yard work?
Sparkling beaches and forever sunsets after long days of playing in the sand and perusing local shops and boutiques. Because of Washington’s diverse terrain, our coastline makes for a just-as diverse and welcoming allure.
Chosen as “The Northwest’s Best Resort in 2016 by Seattle Magazine,” the Semiahmoo Resort offers 4-star amenities, including lodging, golfing recreation, and spa.

The San Juans
Are you looking to get close to nature? Enjoy the sparkling water in the San Juan’s with several fabulous resorts across the islands. We couldn’t decide on just one (stay tuned for an in-depth, San Juan’s vacation post), so we’ve provided a great Trip Advisory link for review-based lists.
The Edgewater: Seattle’s Only Waterfront Hotel
Touted as “Seattle’s only waterfront hotel”, the Edgewater: A Noble House Hotel, offers a stunning escape in the urban paradise. Stay in the heart of the city: only blocks from nightlife, Pike Place Market, Olympic Structure Park, and boutique, Seattle shopping. Vacation “on the edge” beside the lull of the city and the breathtaking vistas of the Olympic Mountains and beyond.
Ocean Crest Resort in Moclips
Along Sunset Beach of Moclips, Washington rests an oasis known as the Ocean Crest Resort. This full-service resort, offers comfortable lodging, an indoor pool, massage & healthy spa, fine-dining restaurant, and gift shop – and don’t forget the cocktail lounge. From their vantage perch, they offer spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and meandering pathways down to the beaches below. As they say, “relax, enjoy, and return again and again.”
Iron Springs Resort
No too far down the Pacific Coast, is the log cabin resort known the Iron Springs Resort. Having evolved from humble beginnings, Iron Springs started in the 1940’s with only a handful of cabins and continued to grow – and build – into the 25-cabin resort they are presently known as. In 2017, they won accolades from Best Northwest Escapes for “Best Cabin” and “Best Dog-Friendly Place to Stay”! Rent one multi-bedroom cabin, or a couple for a whole-family getaway!
If you’re looking to sunbath on Washington’s beaches, wade through nature’s tidepools, or fly your kite in the windy ocean air, Washington many shores have a little something different to offer.
