Its about a mile-and-a-half hike along Rialto Beach to Hole-in-the-Wall, which is a rock arch that's been carved out by the surf and only accessible at times other than high tide. The tide pools are spectacular, with an amazing variety of starfish, sea anemones, mussels,...More

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.
