Do you love just wandering aimlessly along a beach, listening to the waves and looking at the bounty scattered along the sand?

Agates are a semi-precious stone, and are often banded and striped. They form as nodules in volcanic rocks, which are smoothed over time by water.
The beaches around Ocean Shores are popular locations for agate hunting.
Damon Point is a particular favorite for agate hunters, as well as driftwooders and other beach combers and nature lovers. Located at the southernmost tip of the Ocean Shores Peninsula, it’s a lot more peaceful than the hubbub of much of Ocean Shores.
Don’t want to invest in fancy rock polishing equipment?

So pack a lunch and head on down to the beach. Treasures await!
