Carlyon Beach Homeowners Association

Nestled at the end of Steamboat Island peninsula, with breathtaking panoramic views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier, is Olympia’s best-kept secret: Carlyon Beach. Home to over 1,300 people, this friendly seaside community features a private sandy beach, two playgrounds, a clubhouse, a dog park, a marina with low moorage fees, and countless activities for the whole family.

Whatever your passion, Carlyon Beach has something for you: Watch the seals cavort while you stroll along the beach. Sip your morning coffee while gazing at deer and hummingbirds. Go fishing from the dock. Paddle your kayak to Hope Island State Park to explore. Gather old friends for a barbecue at the park. Meet new friends at a community potluck.

If you have children, Griffin School (a short bus ride away) is one of the best in Thurston County. And plenty of family fun awaits in Carlyon Beach: Neighborhood kids decorate their bikes for the annual 4th of July parade, hunt for Easter eggs together, and pose for photos on Santa’s lap at the yearly holiday party.

If you’re seeking small-town flavor close to big-city amenities, Carlyon Beach is your place. Savor the peace and quiet while knowing that every store and restaurant imaginable is a short drive away. Neighbors wave as they drive by, kids call hello from their bikes, and almost everyone wants to stop and chat during a leisurely stroll. We love our community—and we know you will too.

Welcome to Carlyon Beach. Welcome home.
