Pacific Beach State Park is open year-round. It offers 10 acres of camping, with more than 2,000 feet of Pacific shoreline. You can walk the beach in search of driftwood, or sit by a campfire on the white sands at night and gaze up at the stars, listening for the call of the whales just off shore.
Pacific Beach is everything a beach side town should be, plus a whole lot more.
It is inviting, with sandy streets and little shops and homes.
It is a quiet coastal town with a rich history of seamanship and coast life that stretches back a century or more.
Where to Stay
Consider a stay at the Beach Avenue Bed & Breakfast right next door to the Pacific Beach State Park.
The ocean is just outside your door. Listen to the waves crashing all night long, soothing and relaxing. In the morning hit the beach for a leisurely stroll and take in the sights and smells of seaside living.
No pets are allowed at the Beach Avenue Bed & Breakfast and no smoking, but if that’s what you need, consider a stay at Joey’s Beach House. These luxury vacation rentals offer accommodations which are unmatched in the Pacific Northwest with a great view of the ocean.
The Pacific Beach Inn and Love Shack Cabins each offer great rooms not too far from the beach at reasonable rates, between $55-$140 a night. You get a great room and a great view.

Where to Eat
If you are looking for someplace casual to dine after a day of beach combing, don’t just settle for fast-food.

Now under new ownership the joint is rocking seven days a week with some of the finest food to be had on the Pacific coast.
For something a little less casual, consider dinner at Paddies Perch Restaurant. They are famous for their desserts at Paddie’s where the chocolate is so creamy and delicious. Have some of the finest seafood around and then sit back and enjoy a nice big piece of homemade chocolate cake.

Dining at The Ocean Crest Resort is always top of the line, with some of the most delicious cuisine to be had in the Pacific Northwest. Hence, the five star rating.
