Follow a path that leads to a sky full of kites and you'll find yourself in Long Beach. Located on Washington’s southwestern coast where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean, Long Beach is rich with coastal beauty and a fresh Northwest cuisine.
Long Beach offers an endless list of adventures and attractions, from kayaking and clam digging to horseback riding and bird watching. A favorite among locals and visitors alike are the two lighthouses, Cape Disappointment and North Head, which are both fully functional and open year round.
Long Beach is also home to the Washington State International Kite Festival, a weeklong kite celebration and competition held annually during the third week of August, that brings people from all over the world. If you prefer to keep your competition on the ground, join in the SandSations, an annual sand sculpture competition. Another beloved pastime is exploring Discovery Trail, which stretches eight miles from Ilwaco to North Long Beach and commemorates the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
There are shorebirds galore along this 11 miles of Pacific Ocean beach! Spring and fall migrations feature plovers, sandpipers, dowitchers and dunlins, plus Brown Pelicans in the summer.
