While much of the wild Pacific coastline along the northern part of the Olympic Peninsula can only be reached by hiking, a road will take you right out to Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park. The beach is broad and a mix of sand and gravel. From the beach by the parking area, you will see large sea-stacks about a... More

This beach is “really“ excellent! The sea was wild but beautiful, the smell of the sea made me calm. And more, there were a lot of driftwoods on the shore. I wanted to bring back some of them but I noticed it was prohibite. Many people were enjoying their own style, for example, some were playing near the sea shore... More

We went here the morning after going to Ruby beach. It was a little cloudly and all the dead trees, both standing and fallen, make it look a little eerie. The piled up trees at the end of the river are awesome to see and climb on and you could walk/wade out to the sea stacks to explore. I preffered... More

Rialto Beach just 6 miles north of LaPush (Beaches One, Two, and Three) is more photogenic than Beach One or Two. Views of the driftwood piles as well as sea stacks make this a better bet than other nearby beaches.

The hike is a little deceptive, since you see your destination (the Hole in the Wall) from way back... and it takes you much longer to get to it than you anticipate. Walking on the beach instead of a path, it is a little more strenuous than some. It was about a two hour hike (one hour each way). Awesome... More

We liked this beach the best. The sea stacks with the trees on top were so neat. We hiked to the Hole in Wall and it was an easy hike, took a while. What beautiful tidepools at the end. We saw lots of anemones and some starfish (mostly on the far side). The fog rolled in so fast and thick... More

This is a unbelievable sight to see, a must when you are in the area ! As far as you can see there are drift woods, they should call them huge drift trees as they are massive. Beautiful views of sea stacks and the coastline. Just a lovely sight to enjoy. They have a fairly good size parking lot for... More

Camped at Moro campground for 2 nights and enjoyed an amazing 2 days visiting all the beaches in the area. The campground was great; clean, not crowded and offered privacy for you to pitch your tent. Everyone in the campground was very friendly and there was even a spot to get firewood within the campground. It's a quick 3min drive... More

Our first view from the parking lot was of the logs at the edge of the beach - we did not know what to expect beyond that. The tide was coming in when we got there. Whatever little sand is there on the beach was mostly under water. the rest of the beach is stony. If you are pressed for... More

One of the most beautiful beach's in the Northwest. Great place for hiking or camping. The tidal pools are wonderful but you must hike to see them
