How to Beach (and Where)

Beaches are open to the public in our county under Phase 2. Which ones? And how to safely enjoy them?

"How to Phase 2"

Phase 2, means more for outdoor recreation. More places to visit, more travel (limited nonessential travel is okay), and more people. But it's still a time to exercise caution. Let's take a closer look at how and where to enjoy the waterfronts of Seattle Northcountry.



Social distancing is still a thing. Please keep a distance of six feet.

You can hang out with members of your family and up to five people outside your household. That can be quite a group of people. If you’re ok with that, then go for it. There’s also nothing wrong with practicing an abundance of caution and staying home if that’s the best option for you.

General protection. Ok, you’re a grownup, but it still pays to plan ahead. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and shade are good things to take into consideration. You may want to throw in a bottle of hand sanitizer, too.

Pack it in, pack it out. Our beaches are great natural assets. Please protect them by leaving a light footprint.

Get a permit. Parking and launch passes can be found right here.
