"Like entering another world"
The road down to the beach at Seahurst Park winds around amid tall leafy trees and evergreen pines and cedars. The speed limit is 25mph, and some pretty hairy speed bumps were constructed to enforce the limit. Mostly used by local residents due to its nearly secretive location, you have to zigzag through residential neighborhoods to get to the park access road. But it's worth it. After the first and only stop sign, it's like you left the city for the wilderness. Seahurst Park is fairly large and there is plenty of parking for visitors. The park is only open during daylight hours, typically starting at 8:00 in the morning and closing at 4:30 pm in the winter and staying open as late as 10:00 pm in the summer months. At the end of the road, a few parking spots line the entrance to the beach and a public restroom is available. Stunning views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountain range and fantastic Seattle sunsets can be viewed from your car or sitting on the beach. Also a popular scuba diving spot in the area.
