Well worth the drive over to the beach. The amount and size of the driftwood is amazing. Great picnic area. Good paths down to the beach. Amazing views even with the smoke from BC Forest fires.

Nice walk to really cool tide pools. It's about a mile and a half from the parking lot to Hole in the Wall. Beautiful hike! Very easy. Check the tide schedule.

We stopped here after the HOH rainforest and before Sol Duc. There are a few walking trails (perhaps more but we did not investigate). It has a LARGE amount of driftwood which is different than the Atlantic coast. This is not a destination in itself...More

This beach is best if you start with a low tide (early morning, if possible). Lots to see and easy to walk, even if you have difficulty walking on other beaches in the dry sand. Lots of photo ops and beach combing.

Visit the whole in the wall during low tide. Beware of large driftwood during high tide, its and easy way to break a leg or drown. Nice sandy beaches. Often rainy so come prepared

We were glad that the road construction was done when we got to Washington because this was definitely on our list. The sea-stacks are amazing. A rock beach with lots of amazing photo opportunities, especially at sunset.

Really enjoyed this easy hike up and back along the coastline to "Hole In The Wall". Was overcast for us but still very enjoyable to see the spot and everything along the way.

If you want to stay closest to Rialto Beach then check out Olympic-National. It's located at the entrance to Olympic National Park and only 2 miles away on a 28 acre property bordering the Park.
