Dungeness Spit, east of Port Angeles in Clallam County, WA, is the longest natural sand spit in the United States. The spit is 5-1/2 miles long and is located on the northern edge of the Olympic Peninsula and juts out eastward into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Open year round, the entire 314 acre spit is located within the confines of the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, which is home to over 250 species of birds, 41 species of land mammals and eight species of water mammals. The spit is an interesting place for hikes, bird watching and nature sculpted driftwood viewing. There is an automated lighthouse, a small museum, picnic tables, garbage cans and restroom facilities located at the end of the spit. The location of the Dungeness Spit has been known since a Spanish expedition in 1790, and was noted by the British explorer George Vancouver in 1792, who named the spit after the Dungeness Headland in England. Low tide is the best time to visit the spit.
