Liberty bay is a complex bay in Kitsap County, with the City of Poulsbo at the north end. Ten relatively protected and semi-independant beach systems have been delineated in the Bay. Most are short simple systems, except the two larger drift cells associated with the north and south sides of the passage which originate outside the Bay (Beach 4066 and Beach 4075.) six of these have associated barrier embayments systems, although most are small and simple. Eight coastal inlet sites are tucked among the crenulated beaches. The largest and most complex systems being the drowned creek valley associated with the city of Poulsbo Coastal Inlet 209, and the large embayment to the West of Keyport Coastal Inlet 200.
