Some of this planet's most spectacular scenery is to be found along the Pacific Northwest Coast. Lush forests, picturesque coastal landscapes, rugged cliffs, endless sand dunes and soft beaches. In the off-season the coast's quiet solitude is punctuated only by the mesmerizing sounds of waves, seagulls and foghorns on distant lighthouses

Among the treasures to be discovered on Pacific Northwest beaches are unspoiled tidepools, spectacular sunsets and clear nights beneath star-studded skies. Storm watching is also a popular winter-time activity with breath-taking wave action pounding rocky beaches and sending impressive spouts of water-spray skywards.
