The Long Beach Peninsula Is Only A Few Clicks Away!
The Long Beach Peninsula hosts eight active webcams, perfectly located for your favorite picturesque views. Whether you want to check out the waves crashing onto the beach, see the winding path of the Discovery Trail through the dunes and onto the sand, spot the activity on the Willapa Bay at the Port of the Peninsula, watch the visitors stroll along the main street of Long Beach, or view the traffic on the Astoria Megler Bridge from both Washington and Oregon sides. Each and every one of these unique viewpoints is at your fingertips.
Here is a selection of some of our Live Webcams:
The Surf Cam
Check out the waves on the Long Beach Peninsula! The Surf Cam is anchored at [pickled fish] eat + drink, an eclectic bar and grill specializing in fresh, creative, locally inspired cuisine. [pickled fish] is located on the top floor of the oceanfront Adrift Hotel on the Sid Snyder beach approach. It has fabulous views overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Long Beach Boardwalk, and the Discovery Trail. Watch the setting sun, catch spectacular 4th of July fireworks, and be sure to witness the kite filled sky during the Washington State International Kite Festival during the third week of August.
The Tree Cam
The City of Long Beach commissioned a 20-foot tall bronze statue of a windswept tree to commemorate the historic Lewis and Clark Expedition. The tree is an interpretation of the tree in which William Clark carved his initials in on Nov. 19, 1805 not far from this very spot. The bronze tree was installed along the Discovery Trail in October of 2003 – 8.5 mile paved coastal path stretching from Ilwaco to Long Beach. The Tree statue can be accessed at The Breakers Discovery Trail approach.
The Oyster Cam
The Port of Peninsula is located in the middle of the Long Beach Peninsula at Nahcotta on Willapa Bay and has about 90 boat slips. A brow hoist boat sling is available for lifting boats (30′ and under) into and out of Willapa Bay. Power and water are available, as is a public boat launch ramp and the only boat sewage pumpout station located on Willapa Bay. The Port of Peninsula boasts the only fully approved, above ground, commercial fueling facility on Willapa Bay as well. There are fifteen Oyster Dredges working out of the Port.
Please keep in mind that if your view appears as if the glass is wet, it is probably raining. If a partial image appears, it is likely that your browser was updating to the most recent image and the old and new images have overlapped. Just reload or refresh the page and the latest image will be captured. Do not despair if most of what you see is black; it may be nighttime at the beach.
