Took the in-laws when they were visiting and it was amazing. Take a rain jacket and your camera and check the tide chart to be sure you hit it while the tide is going out so you can explore the shore. Really enjoyed this hike.

This beach is very interesting. There are lots of driftwood and tons of fallen big logs to climb on and get pictures of. The beach is very popular and crowded but still somehow peaceful.

My sister and I visit this spot at least three times a year...It's become an important part of our holiday rituals on the Olympic Peninsula...We are grateful for the chance to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States.

Very cool beach to visit and watch the driftwood and the very interesting landscape. When we went it was about 15 degrees cooler than the rest of the park and it was pretty foggy, this to me enhanced the experience but it also limited the sights but I would recommend this as a must do.

To get to the beach we had to climb over all the large driftwood which made it fun. It was like a puzzle trying to pick your way through. Once on the beach, it was a peaceful stroll. Bring a picnic lunch.

Amazing to see all the driftwood on the shore. The stacks in the water are massive and just add to the beauty if this beach. Would have spent more time here if we could have.

Another awesome beach along the rugged Washington coast! We picked up Subway subs in Forks and brought it down to the beach for a picnic among the driftwood. It was a beautiful sunny day though very windy--- great for a long walk along the beach-heading to the right from the parking lot will take you to the 'hole in the... More

Photographing Rialto Beach, the Best Beach on the Olympic Peninsula This beach is just north of LaPush on the Pacific side of the Olympic Peninsula. Although it’s a stones through from La Push it’s an 11 mile (20 minute) drive from La Push as you have to go 5 or so miles up stream to where there’s a bridge across... More

A magnificent wild coast with some enormous rocks that inspire one's imagination. It is a very picturesque location. Gloomy days (that are not rare at all in that part of the World) add to the dramatic atmosphere of the place. When we were there you actually needed a bit of adventurer spirit to reach the part of the coast with... More

That I would have liked to see! We traveled to Rialto Beach as part of a Twilight Tour. If you get to the beach at low tide walk right, cross the river and keep going. In the cliffs that end the beach there is the Hole in the Wall and you can walk out into the ocean through the arch.... More
