“Beauty at Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Near the end of the day we decided to pull into the parking lot and walk down the trail to the beach. The colors on the water were remarkable. Rare to see the copper color of the water. Really peaceful even in June.

This was the day of the really big full moon and back on the road the moon was amazing.

Worth the day trip out of Seattle and part of the around the Olympic peninsula trip. Take the time to stop

“Unbelievably Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This beach was so beautiful at sunset that it literally struck me speechless. A leafy green path through the jungle deposits you on a pebble beach with a view of big rock formations that are out in the ocean. At sunset they are backlit (if you are lucky) with the most beautiful light. I still can't believe how gorgeous my photos turned out. Really, it took my breath away. Don't miss this beach. Try to hit it an hour or two before sunset so you can experience that beautiful light.

“Excellent place to see the sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We went here in the end of June. The weather was great, although we put on our coats. The trail to the beach is very easy for all ages.

“Like a dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Beautiful accessible wa. beach! Awesome sea stacks. Mostly rock beach but sand if you want to walk along it far enough. Only trouble was guy taking pictures thought he owned the beach! But the scenery was great, nice parking lot, walk to and from water was kind of steep but can be done safely enough. Watch out for the tides though as you wander about and the rolling logs. Watched the tide throw a huge log about like it was a toothpick. Wouldn't want to get hit by that! Took great pictures. Don't miss this!

“Enchanting Ruby Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

When I first started researching natural attractions in Washington State, I came across photos of Ruby Beach and knew I had to go there. I was not disappointed.

Ruby Beach is an unspoiled beauty thanks to its inclusion in the Olympic National Park. The sea stacks were gorgeous as was the surrounding forest. There was easy access to the beach. Even though it was an overcast day, the visual treat was unsurpassed by few beaches.
