Escape to Mabana Beach

Mabana is a cozy, private beach on the southwest side of Camano. While away the evening with friends as gorgeous, glowing sunsets reflect off the water. Residents get to take advantage of the shallow water about 300 feet out until it transitions into deep wells and impressions made by whales in the sand.

Mabana Beach is a haven for swimming, crabbing, kayaking, and paddle boarding. More leisurely activities include beachcombing, whale-watching, and enjoying the calm, soothing waters in every season. If you’re nearing retirement, this is a perfect place to settle in and relax.

Close-Knit Community

There’s a combination of low-bank and high-bank waterfront homes. The high-bank homes have stairs leading down to beach access. Mabana Beach boasts an eclectic mix of cabins, cottages, and newly constructed homes. Each Mabana home and resident share their own, unique charm.

Established in 1926, the Port of Mabana was a 60-foot stretch purchased for $500 from a local logger. Functioning as a small port, its dock received mail, freight, and passengers all throughout WWII. Today, the Port is still active but functions to keep debris clear during high tide for crabbing. The old Mabana schoolhouse is now an art studio for renowned local artist, Linda Demetre, who paints using oil and impressionistic style.
