Washington’s five razor clam beaches are beloved by travelers from around our state and beyond. Healthy clam stocks, ample digging opportunities and gorgeous ocean beaches combine to sometimes attract tens of thousands of diggers during a single weekend day. Coastal communities close to digging beaches depend on tourism revenue generated from razor clam digs, so they offer a range of lodging, dining, and entertainment options to satisfy visitors.
