There is a short hike down to the beach. Other than the seastacks and drift-logs there is nothing much to see. However, there were families having picnics and the children seemed to enjoy running around the beach. I recommend going in the morning or late...More

A fun beach to walk on. A bathroom and a medium size parking area. You have to walk down a fairly steep path and when you get to the bottom be prepared to climb over large dead trees. Takes a little effort if you are...More

Beautiful beach with huge stack rocks and strewn with storm blown logs. Tidal pools and ocean sights unlimited! Have to climb over the logs along beach to get to the rocks.

Ruby Beach is one of the highlights of a recent weekend spent touring around the Olympic Peninsula. Located just off Highway 101 near the northernmost tip of the West Coast, Ruby Beach is definitely worth the time spent driving all the way around the peninsula!...More

This is right off of the main road, 101, so that makes it especially worth the time. We stopped there on our drive from Log Cabin Resort to Lake Quinault Lodge. The stacks are beautiful; the whole scene is classic Northwest Pacific Coast. With a...More

Great tide pools and wild life. Beautiful beach with lots of waves. Limited parking and long trail to beach. Then lots of huge logs to climb over to get to beach. Not recommended for elderly or someone who is out of shape. Small parking lot...More

Ruby Beach is a beautiful beach - sea stacks, drift "logs" you have to climb over to get to the beach, forested cliffs - quite the sight. I'd certainly recommend it.

Great place!! I love being here at low tide, able to access the sea stacks and hike along the beach on the other side of the creek. There are LOTS of large drift logs, making it tricky to get out to the beach from the...More

Very nice beach with stacked driftwood, polished rock, and interesting large rocks. Sadly it is so populated with visitors it takes away the beauty of the setting. I’d recommend visiting some of the less populated beaches in the Olympic Rainforest.

Because of the tide we had to cross water to see the nicest parts but we didn't want to take off socks and shoes so saw it more from a distance. Bad choice. Cause gorgeous beach!
