Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse

At 5.5 miles in length, the Dungeness Spit is the world's longest naturally occurring sandspit and home to the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is a sanctuary for over 250 species of birds, 41 species of land mammals and eight species of water mammals. Its trails and picnic areas offer breathtaking views of the beaches, Dungeness harbor and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

If you're up for the hike or a paddle to the end of the spit, you'll find the old Dungeness Lighthouse, built in 1857 and now on the National Register of Historic Places. The new Dungeness Light Station Association has manned the lighthouse since 1994. Access to the Light Station is limited to hikers at low tide and small boats in calm seas. Boats and kayaks need to call ahead for reservations as water access is limited to minimize the disturbance to marine mammals and birds.
