We mean it about the gorgeous. Along with Iceberg Point (last post) & Shark Reef Sanctuary (next post), Watmough Bay completes the tri-force of awesomeness that exists only on Lopez Island.
The parking lot is small & has restrooms & don't worry about a Discover Pass - you're on island property. After you park, a less-than-a-mile trail heads through the forest to the beach.
Once you get there just relax & take it all in. Rocky cliffs meet the Sound in this secluded cove. You'll almost forget you're in Washington state's San Juan Islands & that the light blue water is icy cold - this is the Northwest Caribbean!
