Featured Places

photo of Tahola beach Our work - protecting Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary for future generations - means that on some days, "the office," is being on a boat to watch the sun rise over Cape Flattery, or a secluded wilderness beach monitoring intertidal life. We feel fortunate to live and work in one of the most beautiful places anywhere. So, we’re happy to recommend some of what we think are the best places on the Olympic Peninsula and the Olympic Coast.

However, respectful visitors are always welcome in Native American communities of the Olympic Coast. Learn about culture, traditions and how Indian tribes manage their treaty-protected natural resources first hand by visiting the communities of Taholah, Hoh, La Push, and Neah Bay.
