Although we didn't walk down to the beach we easily viewed the people walking along the ocean beach and all the washed up logs.

Ruby Beach is beautiful! It's about 5 miles North of Kalaloch Lodge. There is a trail down to the beach from the parking lot. There are tons of beached logs on the beach and if you want to get close to the water you'll have to climb over some of the logs. Wear comfortable shoes! The beach is not sandy,... More

Beach is great, all rocks that have washed down the river. Also hundreds of tree trunks on the beach that have washed down the river.

This place was amazing, it was our first time to see the pacific ocean in the northwest. My wife loved the rocky seashore and the trees along the bluffs. The parking area is a bit on the small side and gets pretty busy so you might want to plan on visiting early.

I can't believe I'm calling it "average" but I want to be honest! I've been blessed to have northern California's coastline in my backyard for a few years, and to have visited Oregon's. If you haven't seen a west coast coastline, this place is incredible and worth the stop. If you have though.... I can't say I'd go out of... More

I can't say enough good things about this beach - every good thing everyone has to say about it is true! The hike was relatively short, there were great restroom facilities in the parking area. I sort of hate to give it such a rave review since I wouldn't want it to get too crowded. There isn't as much parking... More

Once you get to the numbered beaches, after likely a long drive, it is tempting to pull over and pass on making it up to Ruby Beach. Don't. Go to Ruby Beach. It is one of the most scenic beaches I have ever been too. Though you won't be swimming in the frigid waters, the visual scenery is quite stunning.... More
