Located on the northeast corner of Maury Island, Point Robinson is located between Seattle and Tacoma in Puget Sound.  This narrow strip of land connects Maury Island to Vashon Island.  

Situated on the sandy beach, the Point Robinson lighthouse originally served as a fog signal station in 1885.  Point Robinson offers great beach combing, and spectacular views of Mt. Rainier.  

 

Where the Whales Are

If the whales are heading south, the beach north of the Lighthouse is the place to be. Sometimes the orcas pass spectacularly close to shore here.
