What did the ocean say to the lighthouse?
Nothing. It just waved.
Point No Point Lighthouse in Hansville, WA is the backdrop to our family’s favorite sandy beach in Kitsap. This is where sandcastles and summer memories are made!
It was built in 1879, making it the oldest lighthouse on Puget Sound. It marks the hazardous shallow sand bank, and its 90-foot radar tower helps monitor and guide vessel traffic.
The lighthouse is open to the public for free, self-guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 – 4:00 pm April through September. You can stay at the historic Keeper John Maggs’ House for the night, or rent the Keeper’s Quarters for a beach stay-cation with friends.
Fishing is also good at Point No Point, one of the most well-known Chinook Salmon spots on Puget Sound. It’s a popular spot for trolling and mooching, which are fishing methods, not shady people.
As if you needed an excuse to go to the beach, our warm summer days won’t last much longer… so go check it out!
