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.

Rialto Beach reviews
Very easy to reach, less than a 30 minute walk once you park. Definitely recommendation going during sunset. It is crazy gorgeous! We definitely got lucky with clear weather during March! more »
Awesome beach, perfect spot to park and walk to some excellent tide pools (Hole in the Wall) only 30-60 minutes walk away. Nice even when weather is cloudy and gray. more »
One of the best experiences of our Northwest Vacation. Beautiful rock covered beach with a breathtaking sunset. We'll visit a second time to reach THE HOLE.
Breathtaking scenery. Drove from Seattle and arrived at the beach just in time for low tide which allowed us to cross through the hole and marvel at the sight of the tide pools. The "hike" to the hole is not a hike but a walk on a sandy and rocky beach. Nonetheless beautiful and enjoyable. Would be back again ❤
