The beaches of Westport Light State Park could have sprung from a novel. Tall dune grasses whisper in the wind. Pathways snake along low bluffs down to sandy stretches of shore. Sunlight plays on the landscape (or storm clouds roll in) and birds cry in the distance. Several hundred feet inland, a tall, lonely lighthouse peeks through the coastal conifers.

Walk the 1.3-mile mostly paved path to Westhaven Jetty, which separates the Pacific Ocean from Half Moon Bay. Go fishing, go surfing or explore the Westport Lighthouse (on nearby Coast Guard property). Run with your dog or ride your horse down the beach. Hop in the car and explore nearby parks. Bottle Beach State Park is a known birding destination, and Twin Harbors or Grayland Beach state parks provide seaside retreats in yurts, cabins or your tent or RV.

This long stretch of Washington beach is the perfect place to play in the summer and curl up in the winter with that book you wanted to read, or with a pen and your journal. You're the protagonist of your own vacation. Thankfully, this park is not fiction.

In 2016, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission combined Westhaven and Westport Light state parks into one park.
