We have more Sequim beaches than you could walk in a year. I mention this not just because walking is great exercise for the body, but because there is something incredibly therapeutic about walking on a beach with the soft sand under your feet, the fresh salt water breeze on your face, and the soft sound of waves lapping at the beach.
Sequim Beaches Everywhere
I’ve said before that if you could put together a checklist of 100 items of the most important things you would want in your community, Sequim would have more checked than any other place in the country. Hundreds of my clients have affirmed this over the past two decades. Sequim is incredible, and the beaches are one of our best features. Walking your dog or your husband on the beach is always refreshing. And there’s no question there is something soothing and even therapeutic about the sounds of water gurgling, splashing, and crashing.
If you plan to visit Sequim and evaluate the area for a possible retirement home, be sure to take a little time during one of your afternoons and walk the Sequim beaches, or at least one. Port Williams is a wonderful walk. There’s a beach at the end of Oyster House Road off Marine Drive, and one of my favorites is the beach on the way to the Dungeness Lighthouse, the Dungeness Recreation Area off Lotzgesell Road. And if you are out west of Port Angeles for an afternoon drive, you really ought to check out Freshwater Bay, which is absolutely gorgeous, and further west is Salt Creek, another wonderful beach. Sequim beaches are one of many reasons so many people love Sequim.
