Beach walking but not easy!

We did the hike from the parking lot to Hole in the Wall. We walked in deep sand, big rocks and a very pebbly beach. The biggest piece of driftwood I've ever seen is here right... read more

We did the hike from the parking lot to Hole in the Wall. We walked in deep sand, big rocks and a very pebbly beach. The biggest piece of driftwood I've ever seen is here right at the beginning. It was a hard walk even in our hiking boots. It was off and on foggy but clear enough to see... More

My family visited this beach because the walk to the tidal pools is supposedly easier than other beaches and we had one mobility impaired person in our group. It certainly wasn't easy. Be prepared to walk about 30 minutes down the beach in very loose rocks. The walk was worth it to see the tidal pools. The starfish and sea... More

Beautiful beach. Rocky and it has a cool interest point called ;hole in the wall'. Quite a walk, but good for rock hounds.

Very short walk from the parking lot to the picnic area and beach. From the picnic area to hole in the wall and back it took us about 2.5 hours. Go when the tide is low or you will be climbing over the logs. Beautiful views, not much for tide pools compared to fourth beach and Ruby beach.

Nice views and many photo opportunities. Enjoyed walking on the beach and probably 45 min walk from parking lot to the structures north (I think the hole in the wall was there).

If we had not been to Ruby Beach just before we went to Rialto Beach, we might have given Rialto Beach five stars. Rialto Beach is beautiful, but not as interesting and spectacular as Ruby Beach. "Once men have tasted caviar, it baffles me how they settle for catfish."

This beach was easy to get to as you don't have to hike in, like many other beaches. It is also not as protected as some of the other beaches so the wind was much heavier here and the sand more rocky. It's a big beach though and plenty of room for everyone. A so-so beach for the area.

We had heard this beach had beautiful sunsets and we were planning to go in the evening. We had extra time in the afternoon so we thought we'd drive out so we'd know the way and where to park. We are so glad we previewed it during the day as we changed our mind and decided it was not worth... More

I love beaches! This one is very popular with lots to see and explore. We even saw whales in the distance! Lots of drift wood to walk on and sand to play in! Did not get to see the tide pools at Hole in the wall but people coming back said they where amazing!

A awesome place to visit. A must see place, it's so relaxing sitting on the beach and listen to the ocean. Love it!
