This place is breathtaking. The view over the ocean with the rocks in the water and on the beach, especially the white logs on the beach are amazing. The beach is a short walk from the parking lot and down some steps. We wore our water shoes so we could climb on rocks without hurting our feet. You have to... More

This lovely beach is accessible by a long walk and then climbing over logs. It can certainly be viewed at the end of the "trail" if log climbing is not possible. The rocky beach has all rounded rocks, which are lovely. The logs, the "islands" and the atmosphere is very special. Loved it!

We stopped here on our way to the HOH Rain Forest. The day was sunny and Ruby Beach was stunningly beautiful. Do not miss a chance to visit this amazing location.

The weather during my visit was overcast and cold but the experience was still great. Great vista and photo opportunities. Easy and short trail from the parking lot to the beach.

My boyfriend and I were alone on the beach. It was October and a little chilly but the wind and sea air were invigorating. I climbed up a large boulder and just stared out into the ocean. Very peaceful and beautiful. I would love to go there again.

Great, scenic place to spend many hours. Very popular and trail is easy - but not so easy to get on Beach as logs, rocks and water. Always wear water shoes. Parking and rest rooms.

The views of the ocean, rocks and sea stacks are dazzling at this beach. Very photogenic coastline and beach combing was great too.

Popular place to visit by both tourists and locals. This place was recommended by the owner of the small store we stopped to get gas and snacks. A couple and their dog were having a pictorial done while we were there. Several foreigners were walking around with their cameras just like me. Very easy access from the main road via... More

We made it to Ruby Beach in time for sunset -- what a treat!! Be prepared to climb over some driftwood at the bottom of the trail. We got lucky and it was mostly clear near the river outlet, but some days it isn't as easy depending on where the tide leaves the logs. Huge expanse of beach where we... More

I loved Ruby Beach! I saw my first anemone and starfish on this beach! It was so exciting! the other thing was that I visited a little off season (end of Sept), so there were no crowds. It was amazing! The beaches at Olympic are so different than the beaches I've been at in Florida and Gulf Shores, Alabama. It's... More
