Ruby Beach in the Olympic National Park has some amazing sea stacks and a prodigious collection of drift logs. There is off road parking with an easy walk to the beach.

We enjoyed visiting there during low tide. Fun walking around the beach and enjoying the scenery. Watch out for eagles and ravens.

This stop on our trip around through the Olympic National Park was my absolute favorite. Even on a cloudy, rainy day it was worth the visit. The beach has no sand. It is covered with smooth rocks. As the waves would retreat the rocks would clack against each other making really interesting natural music. The entire beach was covered with... More

I will preface this by saying I have fairly limited mobility due to my size, a hip replacement and a bad left leg in general due to birth defect. I knew going in getting to this beach and maneuvering around was going to be difficult, but I really wanted to go. The path down to the beach is somewhat steep... More

Afternoon walk on the beach provided ample viewing of submerged animal life through clear water. The eroded coastline provides stone outcroppings approachable by foot or kayak depending on the tide and weather. The remnants of romantic campfires linger close to the tree line below the coastal highway. The wind and the waves are relaxing yet numbing to the mind and... More

We got to the beach in a rainy day, but we still had a lot of fun. The beach was absolutely beautiful. We had 5 adults, 1 teenager and a dog. We had a most fabulous time there.

For me, well worth the travel time to get here. Free access, not crowded and just another beautiful place to be. The pacific was quite angry this day and I am sure that kept allot of people at home. But the thicker the weather the more I respect it. Bring your water proof boots and a rain jacket never hurts.... More

We stopped here after a nice birthday lunch at the Kalaloch Lodge. There is a good sized parking area above the beach. About a quarter mile trail down to the beach. Lots of drift wood to traverse to get to the actual beach.
