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!

Beautiful pebble beach. Large old growth driftwood. Take the hike down the beach during low tide. Day was sunny, can't say I've been to a prettier beach anywhere.

We went at low tide in the late afternoon, early evening to see the tide pools and sunset. We were not disappointed at all! Be prepared to walk on rocks and logs. Even the beach at the water's edge contains small pebbles - not quite an easy walk on the beach. Leave enough time to walk as far north as... More

We stopped here to walk to Hole in the Wall and loved this beach! It was very cloud covered the morning we were there but still beautiful. We saw a few small tide pools, nothing compared to Beach 4, but we did see three Eagles on our walk and the rock chimney formations are interesting.
