Located on the Pacific Ocean on the west side of the Makah Reservation, Hobuck Beach offers walking, birding, surfing, camping, swimming, and much more. Find a place to sit among the driftwood washed up on the shore to enjoy the view as the sun sets. Consult the National Buoy Data Center for information on swells and the wind directions for surf conditions. There is ample parking with access to restroom facilities for day visitors. For those longer stays, you are welcome to make a reservation at the Hobuck Beach Resort.
A Makah Recreation Pass is required to park at the day use area. Please check the Activities for information for location to purchase.
