Olympic Peninsula Waterfront Real Estate

Ludlow Cove Cottages

Washington State's Olympic Peninsula is one of the most beautiful, inspiring and ecologically rich regions of the country. Jutting into the ocean from the northwest coast of the state, the Peninsula's shores meet the Pacific to the west and south, the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north, and the waters of Hood Canal and Puget Sound to the east.

The majestic Olympic Mountains spread across much of the land, rising to just under 8,000 feet (Mount Olympus, the tallest among them) and home to vast stretches of glacial ice. Yet these sky islands are only one of several distinct biomes of the Olympic Peninsula, which is also comprised of rain forest, inland lakes and rivers and saltwater beaches.

This sparsely populated corner of the state is a place where natural beauty at its most rugged is juxtaposed with picture-perfect small towns. Accordingly, Olympic Peninsula waterfront real estate is among the most scenic in the United States. Below, we have made available all of the Olympic Peninsula waterfront real estate listings for your review. However, if you want to learn more about the communities within the Olympic Peninsula, please use the navigation to the left to adventure to the Olympic Peninsula communities.

Olympic Peninsula Wildlife

Olympic Peninsula hiking is a safari unlike any other, as the environmental diversity makes it home to an amazing spectrum of wildlife, including many species that live nowhere else in North America. The "whistling" Olympic marmot is among these endemic species, but it shares the Peninsula and its waters with gray whales, coyotes, river otters, bears and the largest herd of Roosevelt elk in the United States. The Peninsula is also a haven for bird watching, offering sightings of eagles and many other inland, coastal and migratory birds.

Olympic Peninsula Weather

Here, like in many of the Washington waterfront regions, the Pacific Ocean has a stabilizing effect on temperature swings, giving the Peninsula mild winters and warm summers. Though parts of the Olympic Peninsula receive more rain than anywhere else in the lower 48 states, the Olympic Mountains draw rain away from their eastern foothills, creating a "rain shadow" that, in some years, results in less than 20 inches of annual rainfall in areas east of the mountains.

Olympic National Park & Olympic National Forest

The most famous attraction of the Olympic Peninsula, and one of the most famous destinations for Washington State vacations, is Olympic National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve spans nearly one million acres and offers outdoor enthusiasts more than 600 miles of trails for Olympic Peninsula backpacking. Olympic National Park also boasts 70+ miles of unspoiled coast, the Hoh rainforest, dozens of campsites and many designated wilderness areas. Many of the Park's areas and attractions are also wheelchair accessible. Beyond the Park, the Olympic National Forest spreads over another 630,000+ acres of the Peninsula. For Olympic National Park information, be sure to stop first at the main visitor center for Olympic National Park in Port Angeles - an excellent way to begin your Park adventures. Visitors will also find information on the park at any of the many Olympic Peninsula lodges, hotels, bed and breakfasts and RV parks.

Exploring Olympic Peninsula Communities

The Olympic Peninsula feels even more spacious because of its relatively small population. The largest communities on the Peninsula are Port Angeles and Port Townsend, two Victorian-era towns whose historic buildings and picturesque harbors charm visitors from around the world. The Olympic Peninsula is also home to five North American Indian tribes, including the Quileute, who play a prominent role in the famous Twilight novels by Stephanie Meyer. The towns of La Push and Forks, Washington, where the main characters of the novels make their homes, lie in the far northwest area of the Olympic Peninsula. Many people access the Olympic Peninsula from Interstate 5, heading west from Olympia along Highways 8 and 12 to the city of Aberdeen, Washington. From there, Highway 101 leads north and ultimately loops around the perimeter of the Olympic Peninsula, offering an easy and excellent route for a self-guided Peninsula tour.
