From Port Angeles we followed US 101 west for 55 miles to the junction with State Route 110 (signed "Mora-La Push") which is 2 miles north of Forks. Another 15-minute drive to the trail head of the Second Beach. First Beach is the easiest to get to because it is the only one that has roadside access which is very close to the police station. Third Beach requires a 1.2-mile hike so we decided to pass. Second Beach is a hike about 20 minutes which is just right for us. We hiked to the Second Beach at about 3:40PM and was rewarded with the breathless view. On a clear day, the beaches are stunning; the views are very nice and the waves are pretty. There are large rocks (like tiny islands) called sea stacks sticking out of the ocean that make for a beautiful landscape. If you have the time and energy, I recommend Second Beach because the beach is sandy (good for walking). However, the hike is steep and slippery and gets very muddy at times. First Beach is also very enjoyable but has tons of rocks in the sand, so you can't walk barefoot.
All in all, a stunning beach! It is to be noted that the area is famous for rainy days, and the day we went happened to have the clearest weather in two months (according to a local we met), so the views were more colorful than they normally would have been.
