Coastal Beaches

La Push Road, Mora Road and Highway 101, Olympic National Park, WA
Near ocean-side La Push, home of the Quileute Nation, a series of three beaches separated by rocky headlands -- aptly named First, Second and Third Beach -- offer sandy landscapes with tide pools, crashing waves and striking sea stacks. Our favorite is Second Beach, accessed via a gentle trail just long enough (almost a mile) to discourage casual visitors. Rialto Beach is also close by, featuring giant drift logs, dramatic waves and a rocky shore for tossing stones. Further south, near Kalaloch Lodge and campground, Ruby Beach and another beach series (Beach 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) also offer beach combing. During the summer, ranger-led tide pool programs are available at Beach 4.
