Not your average beach! So much more than just sand! A trip to Olympic National Park would not be complete with out a trip here.

This is a beautiful beach, but after navigating carefully down to the beach (torn meniscus), I couldn't go any farther without climbing over massive driftwood logs to get to the sand.

Beautiful beach. Rocks to play with for days. Little live clear creatures on the sand. The weather during our visit could not have been better - a sharp breeze coming off the water and a super sun-bright sky.

Wonderful place about 3hr drive from city but well worth it! Truly amazing and beautiful location! Tourist season dies down in mid to late September in Washington so with exception of a handful of families the beach was all to ourselves. I did see several...More

Beautiful area to explore and actually see the Pacific ocean. Not to hard to get down to the beach, but a real obstacle course for the older generation. Lots of dead trees to climb over. Wear good traction shoes. People down at the beach were...More

Super easy to get to, right off Hwy 101. Well worth a short visit. Beach was covered in drift wood, not just little chunks but whole trees. Plenty of parking when we stopped.

Easy parking, a short hike, and you will be experiencing one of God's amazing creations! The sandy beach, the towering sea stacks, the crash of the waves, the noisy sea gulls, the smell of the salt water, all brought us peace as we strolled along...More

All along this stretch of the Washington coastline you will find broad, deep beaches with stunning views, but what sets Ruby Beach apart is the incredible, towering, rocky sea-stack formations that stand like giant islands in the surf. The brutal surf and winds along this...More

Easy parking and short walk down to beach area. Quite breathtaking with the rock formations and the driftwood logs everywhere. We were all very glad we made this stop. I would highly recommend stopping here if you are anywhere in the area!

I would say 45 minutes to an hour and a half. Not a far walk to the tidepools once you re on the beach, but you could spend a long time looking at all the amazing creatures and rock formations.
