Beach Pea Festival

Salmon Cove has a soft, gray sandy beach surrounded by grassy green fields and cliffs carved out by the ocean. The beach is met by 600 feet of wheelchair accessible boardwalk with an observation deck and a lookout. A cooking chalet, concession chalet, tourist chalet, wheelchair accessible toilet facilities, and lots of picnic tables enhance the area. A bandstand has been constructed to facilitate the Annual Summer Beach Pea Festival held in July and seasonal concerts.

The Trail of the Eagles Walking Trail has been constructed around what is known as "Flat Head." It offers visitors an opportunity to observe Bald Eagles that have made the area home for over twenty years. During July and August, whales frequent the shoreline in abundance as they feed on caplin and squid.

Salmon Cove has an experimental research station, where the perennial Beach Pea and other crops are grown.
