Big Lagoon

Kayakers, windsurfers and stand-up paddlers all appreciate the launch ramp at Big Lagoon County Park and the comparatively still waters of the lagoon. Walkers can choose the lagoon side or the surf side of the spit that usually separates the lagoon from the ocean. Be careful, though -- some years the lagoon breaches, making for treacherous waters. Steady breezes and wide open spaces make this a great beach for kite flying. You can also start at Big Lagoon and walk south all the way to Agate Beach.
