North Jetty is one of the better knows scenic spots in Ocean Shores. I came here to see and photograph the sunset, but it so happened that by the time I arrived the whole beach was covered in thick fog – so thick I could barely see past my outstretched hand. I pretty much gave up on the sunset at that point, but still decided to hang around and wait for it – and lo and behold: the fog soon cleared just enough for me to get some eerie, weirdly beautiful pics that I’m very happy with. I believe clear sky sunsets must be nice here too.
As for the jetty itself, apparently it was built in 1916 to protect the shoreline and for its age, I think, may be considered historic landmark, although there’s nothing particularly spectacular about it: just a long stretch of big rocks lumped together, sticking out into the ocean. It is the ocean that’s the real star here.
I visited the North Jetty in August 2020 as part of my Olympic loop drive.
