I love to tide pool and this was a pretty good spot. You can walk out to the little baby islands and see tons of star fish. A beautiful spot

The walk to the beach is amazingly picturesque. Our photos came out wonderful, but did the actual scenery no justice. Jutting chimneys on the beachhead topped with foliage and crested around its waterline with barnacles was fascinating. Whales were swimming close by, the forest sits...More

The beach is accessed by descending a hill and stairs. Then you must climb over quite a number of huge driftwood logs. It was high tide and very crowded when we visited. It appeared to be a beautiful location, but we just timed our visit...More

A beautiful beach, though I think we liked Rialto and Second Beaches better. Ruby Beach and its parking lot were fairly crowded when we arrived at midday, likely because of its easy access right off Hwy 101. However, most people seem to just wander around...More

Not your average beach! So much more than just sand! A trip to Olympic National Park would not be complete with out a trip here.

This is a beautiful beach, but after navigating carefully down to the beach (torn meniscus), I couldn't go any farther without climbing over massive driftwood logs to get to the sand.

Beautiful beach. Rocks to play with for days. Little live clear creatures on the sand. The weather during our visit could not have been better - a sharp breeze coming off the water and a super sun-bright sky.

We spent about 5 hours there for photography. Maybe an hour or so. Just be careful of the driftwood that you have get over to get to the beach. Factor in some extra time for the tide pools.
