Reviews we had read on Rialto Beach were so good we were somewhat disappointed. The fact that it was rainy and overcast (surprise, surprise) did not help with the beauty of the scenery.

This beach is a totally different "beach" experience - my being from the southern US on the Atlantic side - the Pacific Ocean at this beach was pounding this beachfront, STRONG waves rolling in; not very sandy - very very rocky, but that makes it...More

We really liked this beach, it was beautiful. We had little kids and didn't make it for low tide so we didn't get Hole in the Rock or low tides, but it's a beautiful stop and great rocky beach. Kids had fun playing in the...More

This beach has very nice views of the Ocean. However, I did not enjoy this beach. It is very rocky instead of sand, making it difficult to walk on the beach. However, it is very easy to get to.

It is located at La Push. This is an Indian Reservation place. Many of the homes are not too clean. The beach is beautiful with many rocks formation. Many fishermen catch salmons around here. Ideal for short visit.

Walked the Rialto Beach that is beautiful, has different colored rocks and the waves are just huge and crashing all the time. A lot of driftwood around.

One of favorite spots in Washington. This is a MUST SEE if you are in Olympic National Park. Log strewn beach access gives way to great views.

There are no restaurants at Rialto beach
Visiting the area next September for the first time. Huge park!!! Not sure where to stay for lodging. I'll be in Sequim for 2 nights, but that seems too far away for the Rialto beach area. I do have more time. Thank you. Also in general looking for lodging suggestions around the park. I have 5 nights in total. Rustic national park lodging is fine.
