We took a leisurely drive up Highway 101 in the Olympic National Park and came across a sign that said "Ruby Beach". Parking was ample, there are toilets in the parking lot, and a trail that leads down to the beach which was easily traversed....More

Words could simply not describe the beauty and grace of this beach. The river meets the sea through the rain forest, the logs, it is a perfect place to visit, at any weather

Our family had a blast walking the beach, brought back some really cool rocks and driftwood. Would love to see at sunset, but did not have enough time.

This wild coastline has the unspoiled beauty you've been seeking, and you will dream about later. Make sure to take off your shoes and wade in the shallow reflective water.

Great viewpoint of the Pacific Ocean and the Destruction Island Lighthouse. Hard to get right up to the ocean because of the big logs on the beach.

Went during heavy storm. Watching the waves (from a safe spot) was dramatic. If calm, would be a nice beach walk.

My sister and her husband had been to this place and insisted we go with them. Didn't take much persuasion once we were there and saw how wonderful it is. There's a bit of a walk down to the beach and not suited for handicapped,...More

I knew I wanted to see this beach but couldn't remember its name when I was on the road, so I jumped at the first beach where 101S hit the water. I wasn't disappointed - the classic sea stacks, the pebble beach and tons of...More

Everybody who is driving down Hwy 101 should pull over to see this beach. It's just a short walk down from the parking lot and you can spend 20 minutes here, or all day.

Also from Olympia make sure you travel clockwise rather than counter clockwise around the Olympic Peninsula to save a half hour of driving.

I think you could park overnight, I saw nothing that said you couldn’t. Plus there are restrooms in the parking lot I’m sure travelers stop all the time during the night.
