Ocean Shores Timeshares
Ocean Shores, Washington is a popular escape for nature lovers from across the country. Located on a six-mile peninsula between Grays Harbor and the Pacific Ocean, Ocean Shores timeshares are the perfect jumping-off point for whale watching tours, water sports, and bird watching on at Damon Point State Park.
For kids and families, Ocean Shores timeshares mean endless opportunities for a great time. The beaches are the ideal getaway for building sandcastles, swimming, bike riding, horseback riding, and fishing. In the late winter and early spring, you can take a whale watching tour off the peninsula. The moderate temperatures are another bonus of travel to Ocean Shores, as summer temperatures rarely go higher than 80 degrees with average winter highs in the mid-40s Fahrenheit. The moderate weather, combined with six miles of sandy beaches, a network of canals for fishing and boating, and almost 12,000 acres of an old-growth forest makes this area an ideal getaway for any nature lover.
Best Time to Visit
May through August is the busiest time for tourism on the island, as families and couples come to enjoy their summer vacations on the beaches, but the second busiest time is January through April when the whales migrate past the island. The fall from September through December is the slowest time to visit, so if you can make travel plans to stay in Ocean Shores timeshares at this time you are probably going to find great deals and fewer people. The weather typically stays pleasant for outdoor activities through September and early October.
Amazing Bird Life
Bird watching is another popular past time here. The Griffiths-Priday State Park is home to many bald eagles and its trails among the grassy coastal dunes are popular with visiting hikers. Damon Point State Park, also known as Protection Island, is one of the best birdwatching sites in the northwest. Snowy plovers, peregrine falcons, and brown pelicans nest on the island among many other species. While on Protection Island you'll also want to explore the ruins of the SS Catala and search for agates on the beaches.
At the end of a long day outside, it can be tempting to settle back into your Ocean Shores timeshare with a cozy fire blazing in the fireplace or relax in the serenity of your living room. However, if you want to get out and enjoy the nightlife, the town's restaurants and bars provide a selection of venues. You can also play slots, table, and electronic games at the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino.
