Heading east on Highway 525 turn right onto Double Bluff Road. Follow this charming road to the end where a tiny parking lot, breathtaking views, and the most unique public beach on Whidbey Island awaits you.
You have made it to Double Bluff Beach. It is here you will find over 4.5 miles of flat sandy beach where you and your entire family (including your dogs) can enjoy breathtaking views for as far as your eyes can see and if it’s clear, a view of Mt. Ranier! This off-leash dog park got its name “Double Bluff” from the two large bluffs that are the main attraction for the park. Amongst the numerous features, you will find picnic areas, public restrooms, a doggie bag station, clam digging areas, showers to wash off the sand, a payphone, shallow water for wading that gets very warm in summer, and driftwood to lean against.
Grab a picnic lunch from Payless Foods just down the road in Freeland and spend a beautiful Pacific Northwest Day here! Be sure to arrive early, get a good spot, and don’t forget to pack the sunscreen!
