Pac Beach

The Pacific Beach Resort (Pac Beach) is located in the town of Pacific Beach, about 15 miles north of Ocean Shores.  This facility is operated by the US Navy's MWR for the benefit of all active duty and retired military and DoD employees.  The resort has 30 cottages (3, 4 and 5 bedroom houses), hotel, RV park, restaurant, gift shop, bowling alley and other recreational activities and sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

I have been there with family and friends a number of times over the years and we have always enjoyed the stay.  The wife and I, along with 2 other couples, went back to Pac Beach this past weekend, renting a 3 bedroom house along the bluff and enjoyed a relaxing retreat away from the usual daily activities.

All of the houses have been newly remodeled and were reconditioned inside and out.  They had always been a nice place to stay, but now had a spiffier feel to them.  The house this weekend had 3 bedrooms (2 with queen beds and one with a pair of twins), 2 baths, and a spacious and open living area with an adjoining kitchen and a garage.  The house had linens and bedding, basic cooking and eating stuff and a TV with cable and DVD.  All you need to bring is your own clothes, personal stuff and food.

The weekend was rainy and a bit windy, although not to bad.  Sue and I enjoyed a trio of walks along the mostly deserted beach.  Once you are dressed warmly and the rain gear is on, the weather becomes mostly a non-issue.  Fortunately most people don't believe that, leading to a beach that you don't have to share, except for the gulls and sand pipers. I really like the winter time beach walks

The rest of the time we stayed tucked into the house with friends; talking, eating, playing games, watching football and having Bible study.  The opportunity to get away with the wife and close friends was a great one, and one I am very thankful for.

If you are eligible to spend time at Pac Beach, I would encourage you to take advantage of it and enjoy the quiet and solitude, or take friends and family and enjoy the extended time together.
