Create an itinerary including Rialto Beach
Take in the spectacular driftwood formations at Rialto Beach, a pebbly beach contained within Olympic National Park. It can be a bit of a scramble over logs and rocks to reach the beach, depending on the tide, but you'll be rewarded with great views. The picturesque beach offers a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean from Washington's west coast. The driftwood, both onshore and offshore, casts interesting patterns on the ocean's surface. Photographers will enjoy spending time playing with angles and perspectives offered by the intersecting pieces.

  • The waves here during high tide can be scary, but it's a great place to watch the big ocean waves crash onto the beach. There's a lot of dead logs to walk around and the Hole in the Wall walk you can do. Parking is free and remember to bring toilet paper for the restroom.
  • Gorgeous beach!! You'll get a forest/beach vibe. Very neat to see. Lots of cool rocks & drift wood too.
