I am currently working on our upcoming itinerary for a 4 full days and 5 nights trip to Olympic National Park. We will be staying in the Forks area for our first 3 nights in late July, arriving into SeaTac on a 2:30pm flight. We love sunsets along the beach and want to be at one each of those 3 nights. We also are planning to spend significant time during the daytime to explore the beaches. From my initial research here, I see that Rialto is the one most recommended for a sunset, so I will include that as a must-do sunset. We are unsure if we will make it to the Quinault Rain Forest (we hope to), but are definitely planning to visit Kalaloch and Ruby Beach during our trip. I realize weather is unpredictable, and our plans need to be flexible.
If we drove straight from the airport that first night, we wouldn’t be in the area until 6-7pm or so, but we most likely will stop for a meal along the way (any suggestions on a good place for that, too?).
1) Which beach would you recommend to visit on that first night after a long day of flying/driving?
2) Where would you recommend for the other 2 beach sunsets, after Rialto?
