The Olympic Peninsula and Washington Coast Sights

Ruby Beach

Fodor's Review

Named for the rosy fragments of garnet that color its sands, this is one of the peninsula's most beautiful stretches of coastline. A short trail leads to the wave-beaten sands, where sea stacks, caves, rock cairns, tidal pools, and bony driftwood make it a favorite place for beachcombers, artists, and photographers. It's 28 miles south of Forks, off U.S. 101. Amenities: toilets. Best for: sunset; walking.
