About Long Beach Peninsula, WA
Long Beach, Washington claims to be home to the longest beach in the world at 28 miles long. You know you’re there when you see the large arch marking your path as a gateway to the Pacific Ocean. Located on the southern Washington coast, the tourist destination is only about 20 miles from Oregon.Also known as the “World’s Longest Drive-able Beach,” at one time Long Beach’s sand was packed densely enough to support the weight of vehicles.
This attracted tourists from all over the world to come and drive the length of the beach, or at least part of it. While part of the beach was stable enough to drive on, other parts were too risky to take a vehicle out on.
Now, sections of the beach are protected for the sake of clam beds and Long Beach hedges. Every April, people come to learn about the history of Razor Clamming at the Long Beach Razor Clam Festival. This event has been revived from a 10 year run in the 1940’s. Read More:
