About This Place
Pacific Beach is an unincorporated community in Grays Harbor County, Washington, United States, by the Pacific Ocean. There are many hotels there and a stretch of usable beach area is available to those who visit.
Pacific Beach, combined with its close neighbor to the north, Moclips, is referred to by the North Beach Business Association as "Washington's best kept secret." The most obvious draw to the region is the almost two miles (3 km) of flat, wide-open Pacific Coast beach that stretches between the two towns 30 miles (48 km) northwest of Hoquiam. Both are on state Route 109 between Ocean Shores and Taholah.
Besides its early manifestation as a sawmill town, Pacific Beach has always been a resort destination of sorts, ever since a man named Henry J. Blodget first settled that part of the coast during the mid-19th century.
