I went here at low tide in the morning so I could make it to the hole in the wall. It was a great walk. Sandy at times, loose pebbles/rocks at others. The only surprise was Ellen Creek which had to be crossed and I had to get wet. I highly recommend this place for nature lovers. I saw deer,... More

We drove here for a birthday celebration. Found ourselves in Olympic National Park again. This is a rock skippers paradise... more darn flat rocks on the beach than you can shake a stick at. Rough surf and beautiful stacks off shore.

Very unique rock formations in and around the beach. You can either relax on the beach or hike to some of this rock formations (actually mini islands) over fallen trees during low tide. You should visit during low tide when there is more land area to cover and you can hike to nearby islands (few of them). The hike over... More

Absolutely beautiful! It's a rocky beach with tons of large driftwood/trees. Love bringing a picnic, book, blankets and camera and sitting enjoying the beach for hours. There is a small platform for wheelchair to view beach, but it leaves a lot to be desired. They will be unable to access beach in chair.

We visited on a sunny windy day, with big early autumn waves. On the way to the Hole in the Wall, we saw a bald eagle sat on top of a stack. Well worth the 2 hour plus round hike.

There was a suggestion to go to Rialto in a forum I was part of. I went, and although I was underwhelmed at first, it may have been my favorite stop of my trip. The logs on the beach were huge. After walking down the breakwater I was surprised with more amazing views, including a double rainbow. Eagles were perched... More

Cold wind blows off the Pacific Ocean and wild wave chop that chop at the coastline carves out a beautiful shore line. If you like remote beach areas, wind and waves, and rain on your day, and beautiful view, visit Rialto Beach.

Although this beach is fairly remote, it is worth visiting whether you are passing through or staying in the area. Beach is actually black "sand" (small black rocks). Lots of driftwood and rocks to pick through and stack. Nice surf. Haystack rocks offshore.

Beautiful beach. Right off the parking lot so no hiking involved. Really is a must do. I've been there three times and will continue to visit this beach each and every time I am there because it is that amazing!

This rocky and driftwood-covered beach had views of many little islands. It was windy and cold, but interesting to walk on the beach.
