Pacific Sunset Views at Ocean Crest Resort in Washington State
March 14, 2014 at 8:47 AM
Killer views that involve a beach do not always have to be the tropical kind if you ask us, which is why today’s shot is courtesy of a deep pink sky just after the sun has dipped into the Pacific Ocean off of the Washington State coast, in the tiny hamlet of Moclips.
That’s where you will find Ocean Crest Resort, which clings above a small forested ravine just behind the beach. Why would you find yourself in Moclips? Aside from the beautiful beaches themselves, Moclips can be a perfect stop when exploring the Olympic Peninsula and National Park, home of the temperate rainforest that is one of the wettest places in the contiguous United States.
The hotel is completely obscured from view looking back from the sand, with just the last bit of stairs visible.
The wooden walkway meanders down and around the trees, with benches here and there for a rest or a stop to sit and read for a while.
There are a total of 45 rustic accommodations, ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments. If you want to save a bit, pick a room without a view and enjoy it outside or get one with your own private balcony to see the water glimmer in the distance. Nightly rates for entry-level rooms at Ocean Crest are under $100.
