If you're a part-time mermaid, you'll want to check out this secluded stretch of shoreline. Damon Point State Park, Washington, boasts a single piece of land that juts out into the ocean. It's the perfect place for a stroll collecting seashells and agate!

Just a little over a 3-hour drive from Seattle, depending on where you're coming from, is a stunning 61-acre park on the Ocean Shores Peninsula.

You can take a road trip down from the city and explore the shoreline for an affordable date day or relax on the sand for some vitamin "sea."

It's completely free to visit, and there are a variety of activities you can indulge in, including hiking, wildlife viewing, picnicking, and more.

The remoteness of this spot makes it an excellent place for a walk on the sand, especially if you're on the hunt for stunning rocks like agate.

According to the website, it has dreamy sights of Mount Rainer, the Olympic Mountains, and Grays Harbor so you can have fun with a view!

It's open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., so no matter when you're craving a little sea salt, you can head over to this park for your fix.

If none of your friends can hit the road with you, you can bring your pupper along instead.

They're allowed on specific areas of the beach

Whether you're looking to escape the city or let your inner mermaid rock collector loose, this remote area will give you the best of both worlds.

Happy collecting!
