“One of the best sunsets in the US”

La Push Beach is a series of beach chains called Beach one, two, and three. Beach one is fourteen miles, beach two is thirteen, and beach three is twelve miles away from the town of Forks, located along the Pacific Coastline of Washington State, near the most western point of the continental United States. The beach’s most prominent natural growth is the Sitka, Spruce, and Evergreen trees that populate the shore. Trails to Second beach start at the Quileute Indian Reservation, and span a mile before you reach the coast. Second Beach is the longest and flattest of the three beaches and is the most populated. Though within a mile of First and Third beach in each direction, north or south; they are inaccessible due to the protruding headlands and steep bluffs. Half a mile offshore is an archipelago. Sea stacks are mixed throughout the small islands and are known as the Quileute Needle. They are part of a wildlife preserve called; Quillayute Needles National Wildlife Refuge. The wildlife protects coastal creatures including but not limited too; seabirds, oystercatchers, and gulls.

I am so surprised that nobody has written a comment yet. Although it is quite a beautiful walk to reach second beach... HOLY CRAP IS IT WORTH IT. Besides a tire or two on the beach... it is pristine and memorizing! !! The huge rock formations... beaches that stretch forever... just wow! Totally recommend!!

The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because the hike in is a little difficult towards the end for a lot of people (very steep and treacherous, you have to find your way over very large trees/driftwood), but it is worth it! Amazing rock formations, lots of cool tide pools when the tide is out.

Really fantastic spot. Camp about a mile from the beach, then walk along a well-maintained trail to the beach. We showed up at sunset and still found a great spot to pitch our tents. Totally secluded, gorgeous.
