  • Sekiu is pronounced "SEE-cue"

  • The two towns share a Chamber of Commerce. Check the website for fishing information and local fishing derbies and contests. 

  • Highway 112 will take you right past the area's Visitor Center (pictured below). Look for it in "downtown" Clallam Bay Washington where the road bends sharply as it continues heading west.

  • With an average rainfall of 95 inches per year, don't be surprised if a little rain falls on your parade. The good news is that July and August tend to be considerably drier than the rest of the year, with less than 8 inches falling during the 3 months of summer. On the other hand, winter, spring, and autumn rainfall ranges on average from 23.79 inches to 37.95 inches per season. (That's a LOT of rain....)

  • Average year round temperatures in Clallam Bay range from 41 degrees F in December to 58 degrees F in August. Being right on the water, the weather CAN be chilly throughout the summer, although maximum temperatures can certainly reach into the low 80's for a few days in July.

  • The area is at least partially dependent on tourism. Logging and fishing contribute to local industry. Clallam Bay is the location of a county prison.

Tripadvisor Reviews of By The Bay Cafe in Sekiu, WA

Tripadvisor ranks this restaurant #1 of 1 restaurant. Yes, there really is just one restaurant in Sekiu. Nevertheless, my friend Candi and I ate very well here (she requested only half the bun; they happily obliged). The place is not big, but it has earned its "favorite" status with locals and visitors.
