All reviews hole in the wall low tide tide pools sea stacks parking lot small pebbles huge driftwood la push driftwood trees drift wood the north end tide chart bald eagles keep an eye sea anemones star fish the pacific ocean
The hike to get to the start of the tide pools and hole in the wall is on the long-ish side with not the greatest of footing (loose sand and rocks all the way). The evening low tide is definitely the time to be there...More
We went to Rialto beach for sunset we went to walk to the arch we didn't know how long it would take us we are avid walkers it took us about 45 -50 to get there, so take the time to get out there. we...More
Wonderful beach to see! The tide pools at low tide were the best we found around!! Only thing is beware if you have bad knees or ankles. The beach is very difficult to walk!! It is not sand but rocks and you sink down into...More
I am told there are better beaches in Olympic, but we were pressed for time and couldn't hike anywhere. So Rialto was amazing. I've never seen anything like it. The rocks, driftwood, and waves are beautiful in a strange, other-wordly way. Definitely do not regret...More
We spent four days hiking from Shi Shi to Rialto. Wonderfully transporting scenery and wildlife. The hiking is quite demanding with full packs, soft sand, huge headwalls, slippery rocks, tides to factor in, but all worth the effort. Just dont push the mileage, it is...More
This beach was absolutely beautiful. The rocky shoreline combined with the crashing waves and gorgeous surroundings are a must when visiting Washington. Tons of driftwood add to the unspoiled beauty to be found here. On our visit we were able to watch a sealion playing...More
What an incredibly stark contrast: upright lush green forest shoved up against the pepple beach and the pounding Pacific surf. The driftwood is astounding and makes for fun structures for kids to burn energy.
The black sand on Rialto Beach along with the impressive beached logs are enough to keep you content with this spot. Just a mile north of the parking area is Hole in the Wall and Ellen Creek camping area. Time your walk to coincide with...More

Actually it’s more of a walk than a hike, about 10th of a mile and 50ft down in elevation. Keep in mind the geography of the beach changes dramatically due to storm surges. The last time I was there you did have to scramble across 40ft of tangled drift logs to get to the beach, which can be difficult for those with mobility issues. The other issue can be parking, it can get crowded. You might also consider Kalaloch, it is south of Ruby a couple miles. There is campground and day use area with plenty of parking and restroom facilities as well as a full on resort just south of the campground. Kalaloch Resort is amazing and does offer wedding packages I believe. Good luck and Congratulations
