Nice walk on the rocky beach

Beautiful day walking on a Ruby Beach. It is a rocky beach which makes it hard to walk fast. Scene is beautiful. Highly recommended.

My family had a very difficult journey getting to Olympic National Park and we missed Ruby Beach because we got to our campground very late. However, I got us to backtrack the next morning and it was SO worth it. There was not a lot of parking space so I recommend going early, and the walk down may not be... More

Not an ideal place to hike during a rainy day. Especially with little kids, it gets muddy and not too pleasant. The beach is nice overlooking pacific ocean coast. It can get very cold from the wind. The rocks formation is beautiful.

If you are looking for a natural place that takes your breath away it would be here. Its a small hill down but not steep and very flat, not horrible at all! When you first arrive there is a breathtaking look out, then you start down the hill there is another wonderful look out. Then the rest of the hill... More

This is an absolute must stop if you are in the area. We came out at sunset then stayed to watch the stars. It was absolutely gorgeous with lots of neat sea stacks and driftwood. Ruby Beach is one of my favorite memories from the entire trip.

The sea stacks are very interesting and there is an abundance of natural beauty consistent with the Pacific Northwest

We've been to Ruby a number of times over the years. But we went on a Saturday in March and it was amazing. We arrived at about 9:30 AM and there were two other cars in the lot. Within a few minutes we could see only two other people in one direction and nobody in the other. The low-tide walk... More

Loved Ruby Beach. Lucked out and visited when the tide was quite far out, so there was plenty of beachcombing. Like many of the beaches in this area, there were loads of washed up logs on the beach. It was so beautiful to sit on a log and watch the waves roll in. So peaceful to breathe in pure clean... More

We stopped here after going through Forks and the Hoh Rain Forest. It was cold in February, but we still enjoyed the beauty of this beach. The kids climbed on large driftwood trees, and explored the rocks and beach. There is a very short walk from the parking lot to the beach. At sunset many people came to take photos.... More
