Shine Tidelands State Park is a 13-acre day-use park with 5,000 feet of tideland along Bywater Bay. At high tide, there is little beach available to the visitor. Low-tide shellfish-harvesting opportunities are available nearby. Kayaking and windsurfing are popular on the beach.
Shine Tidelands became part of the Washington State Park system in 1967. The park property was formerly a portion of the Wolfe Property, named after original owners Elmer and Sophia Wolfe.
