Nestled on the shores of Puget Sound, Port Ludlow hosts beautiful residential neighborhoods, a boutique waterfront inn, a 300-slip marina, and a championship 18-hole golf course. The award-winning Fireside Restaurant offers sweeping views of Ludlow Bay and a daily menu featuring the bounty of the local farms. For those seeking adventure, Port Ludlow offers a variety of activities to enjoy the wonders of Mother Nature. Take a kayak or a stand-up paddle board into the bay and explore the twin islands. Hike or bike some of the 26+ miles of trails and experience the magical views and abundant wildlife. If it’s fishing or crabbing you enjoy – head out into Puget Sound and drop some pots or cast your line. Or, if it’s a nice walk you’re in the mood for or looking for a place to set down a chair, head to the beach and soak in the views.
The Port of Poulsbo operates a first-class destination marina, the Poulsbo Marina, for both recreational and commercial vessels. Its popular mountain views are surrounded by numerous recreational opportunities; and natural, historic, scenic, cultural and dining pleasures. Separated from the main body of Puget Sound through a narrow passage, it is indeed a safe harbor in a storm and is protected from the gales associated with this area.
