Rialto Beach was definitely one of the highlights of our coastal trip. The beach is very easy to get to. We still had gray skies after Second Beach, but the beach is beautiful. We got here during low tide so we could walk out to the hole in the wall formation which is a mile and a half up the... More

Rialto Beach was very cool. It was not one of the better days for weather during our visit to Olympic National Park but still was worth the trip. We could only see the outline of the sea stacks just offshore but the driftwood(sometimes drift-trees) scattered all over the beach, the large but smooth and rounded rocks that make the "sand",...

This beach is an easy drive to get to. Short walk to the water but you might have to climb over some rather large driftwood or drift trees is what I would call them. So very unusual and really a great view for pictures. We were here at the end of May and the weather was great but it changes... More

We visited Rialto Beach while on a counter-clockwise tour of the peninsula with the hopes of hiking the few miles north along the beach to Hole in the Wall, a natural arch, but of course, like usual, our timing was poor, and we arrived a few hours before high tide. Regardless, we headed north a half mile or so on... More

This is a beautiful beach at La Push though in my opinion not as pretty as Ruby down the coast. The beach is filled with driftwood as it is quite windy (we were told to expect this). there was also a lot of activity in contrast to the quiet of Ruby Beach.

What a gorgeous place to visit, full of photographic opportunities and ripe for quiet contemplation, with the just motion and sound of the breaking waves and the sea spray. Bring a warm jacket or blanket, even in the summer, as the temperature of the beach can be 20 or more degrees (F) cooler than just a mile or two inland!... More

Rugged moon lit beach added to the NW Washington adventure. The size of the "driftwood is unbelievable. Pure heaven. Nothing to dislike!

It is easy to get to, easy to walk on, and whether you walk .5, 1 or 1.5+ miles up the beach, you are going to be pleased with what you see. We are 66+, no problem. It is better than all the areas to its south.

Spectacular sands, neat islands, hole in the rock walk well worth it. Fallen trees on the beach make great photos.
