The harvestable portion of this beach has been expanded by D.O.H. to include all of Lilliwaup State Park tidelands inside Lilliwaup Bay (see beach map). This beach is mostly rocky and digging is difficult, but there are some butter clams, native littleneck clams, and Manila clams available at Lilliwaup State Park.
From the north (Port Angeles, Kingston) travel south on Highway 101 through the town of Eldon and continue for another six and a half miles. There is parking and an access trail about a half mile north of Lilliwaup. This beach can also be accessed via the stairs at the southern parking area which is just northeast of Lilliwaup at the corner where the highway starts to curve around Lilliwaup Bay. There are WDFW shellfish harvest information signs posted at both the northern access trail and at the head of the stairs at the southern parking area.
FACILITIES None. There is a store in Lilliwaup and public restrooms at Hoodsport.
