This is the ultimate NW destination for amazing storm watches!! There is 29 miles of sand beaches with nothing interrupting the view, feeling the pounding wind and experiences the power of our NW storms. Surf crashes hundreds of feet into the air against rock cliffs topped by the iconic Cape Disappointment Lighthouse. Bring your camera and rain gear... you'll want them both!
