There is something about this beach that brings peace to me every time we visit! My husband and I have been here many times, and have brought our daughter along with some friends. It's definitely our favorite part of the Olympic National Park to show off to someone who hasn't been here. Make sure you catch low tide, and a... More

Rialto beach is a great destination for those who like to walk on the rugged beach and take in natural wonder without commercialism affecting it. Great sunset photography spot as well

Our visit to Rialto Beach left us in awe. Massive trees on the beach were so large they were difficult to climb over! The power of nature and the sea is incredible. We saw bald eagles in nearby trees and enjoyed the heavy surf although the beach looks somewhat daunting. I'm not sure I would feel comfortable with anything more... More

Rialto Beach is a wonderful Pacific Northwest beach located near Forks and is more easily accessed than others as one can drive just feet from the beach rather than needing to hike over steep headlands. To get to Rialto Beach, head west on La Push Road (WA-110) from Hwy 101 just north of Forks for 7.8 miles (12.6k) then turn... More

Rialto is a gorgeous gorgeous beach. We went during the winter and only share the beach with 3 other people. The sunset is the best time to go. I've been to beaches in Brazil, Thailand, Korea and Florida and this is the most beautiful one I've ever been too.

This is a nice beach that you can drive right up to. There are picnic tables and rest rooms available but no running water. The view is great and the beach is wide. Many sea stacks and lots of beach logs piled up. There is a river that runs through the area and it held an amazing amount of Harbor... More

A wild shore with large rock formations, a rocky shore with large driftwood logs. There is a picnic area and trails to coastal caves.

This was the first time either of had seen the Pacific Ocean and what a gorgeous place. I've never seen anyplace like it. The view of the rocks and HUGE trees was just as beautiful as the water itself.

Easily accessible beach with great driftwood and rocks. Not much beach at high tide, but quite extensive and walkable at or near low tide. Tends to get crowded in the summer, but virtually empty other times of the year. Great place for a leisurely picnic lunch, available to go in Forks or at the Three Rivers on your way to... More
