Exploring a Local Beach Perfect for Kids

Sound South Beach Highlight: Saltwater State Park delivers a sandy beach getaway only two miles from Interstate 5. This 137-acre park features forested campsites along a bubbling creek, tide pools and a driftwood-strewn shore to explore, and an artificial underwater reef perfect for scuba diving. Visiting a beach with your kids can be a wonderful way to spend quality time together while enjoying the beauty of nature. If you're looking for a family-friendly spot, consider exploring this great beach. There's lots to do here, and it's a crowd pleaser for all ages. We recently went at low tide and my kids loved looking for crabs and creatures in the sand. The slow moving creek is also a hit for digging, building and playing.

We love using this Puget Sound Tide Pooling Guide as we explore.
