Kalaloch / pronounced clay-lock

Some draw energetic crowds, while others are semi-secret and serene. Whatever you seek from the sea, the seven beautiful Kalaloch beaches deliver.

Taste the salt spray as you explore shores that run ruby-colored to rugged. Wander among dramatic sea stacks and thriving tidepools. Pull up a driftwood seat to whale watch or watch the sun fall into the Pacific Ocean. Savor imaginative cuisine made from fresh and local ingredients.

Set camp on some of most scenic grounds around, or nestle in at an historic waterside lodge. This is a place to savor.
