I stop at this beach every time I travel by on HWY 101. Last Sunday was no exception and it is still as beautiful as the first time I went there. As I was coming up the trail on the bluff into the parking lot a gentlemen rolled down his window and ask how far down it was to the beach. I told him 5 to 10 minutes depending on your speed. He rolled up his window and drove off. I really felt bad for him as he and his family really missed an opportunity.
That said this beach is fun. The water like everywhere in Washington is cold and you should not go in without a wet suit. The waves can be high and they will smash into the rocks just off the shore. There are public restrooms (not pretty or wonderful smelling, but in a pinch will work). The location is just off HWY 101 before it cuts inland to the Hoh Rainforest. The area is romote. There are no restaurants, hotels and gas stations along the route from Quinalt Lodge area until Forks and those are quite limited. Really Port Angeles to Ocean Shores are going to be your major areas to get filled up and supplies. It does not matter if it is low tide or high tide as you can walk the beach either way. Do go out to the rock formations as you can see anenomies, starfish and probably a seal out in the water. The most amazing feature of this place is how the forest just runs into the ocean. This is different than the other beaches in the area and while they all are nice to visit, this is the one not to miss!
