With convenient beach access in a wooded area located east of Oak Harbor, Polnell Shores is a waterfront neighborhood that is one of the few communities on Whidbey Island that enjoys a south-facing view of Saratoga Passage and Camano Island. Polnell Shores is a great place to watch whales or enjoy beach activities.
"Beautiful, mostly older homes, that have south-facing views. Perfect for all-day sun."
"The peninsula and cove that are in view from almost every home here are filled with whales, eagles, and yachts. The Southern sunshine always warms the hearts and homes here."
"We love walking along the beach on long summer days and watching the sun set across the horizon."
-Jose and Nadia J.
We love the spectacular views of Saratoga Passage, Camano Island, and the Cascade Mountains, and think you will too. Plus, residents of Polnell Shores can avoid the busy highway and reduce commute times when driving to Oak Harbor by taking the back roads.
Oak Harbor, along with the commercial businesses and services, is just a quick drive away. Located on the north part of Whidbey Island, Deception Pass State Park, Dugualla Bay State Park are easy to visit. Head to Deception Pass during weekdays to avoid the weekend crowds that visit Washington’s busiest state park. Several small farms have sprouted throughout the area in recent years and the northern part of the island has several equestrian facilities. The Navy’s Seaplane Base is also conveniently located to Polnell Shores.
