“Outdoors & Recreation in Forks, WA”
Ruby Beach is the northernmost of the southern beaches in the coastal section of Olympic National Park in the U.S. state of Washington. It is located on Highway 101, in Jefferson County, south of the town of Forks.Like virtually all beaches on the northern coast, Ruby Beach has a tremendous amount of driftwood. It is notable for the number of sea stacks there.The beach is so called because of the ruby-like crystals in the beach sand.
Visited in March and the sunset was breathtaking!! Can't wait to go again!
Loved this area! Beautiful beach, enormous trees of driftwood.
Absolutely stunning. Came during the summer at sunset, and it was just as the other Roadtrippers say - breathtaking. Definitely worth the stop, even if you are short on time, please do it!
Ruby Beach is absolutely worth stopping for while in this area. The pictures don't really do it justice. There are excellent photo opportunities both up near the parking lot and down on the beach itself. When we arrived, the tide was coming in and we decided to stay on one side of the water and forego the walk down the beach. The views are fantastic here and the kids loved climbing on the driftwood. If you can catch the tide at the right time you can see some cool sea life and seashells.
Worth the stop every time ......History of the beach is a treat as well
Amazing beach with black sand and clear water and crashing waves. It also has abundant tide pool life including hermit crabs and starfish along with multiple types of colored fish.
A favorite stop. The sand is the best I’ve ever felt. Go see starfish and other sea creatures! Wish I could have stayed longer
Amazing! Worth the drive! Crowded during weekends and parking lot fills up. Have patience! Sit,relax,listen, and enjoy!
Kids dream, lots of drift wood to climb on and explore. Simply beautiful.
Beautiful! All times of day. We even went after the forest fires and it was still stunning. There weren’t many people here and was fun climbing around during low tide. Great phot op.
