Rialto Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the Olympic Peninsula. It is easily accessible by car, and has several picnic sites with tables and campfire pits, restrooms and running water.
The 1.5 mile hike to Hole-in-the-Wall (3 miles round-trip) is an amazing walk past piles of giant drift logs, a freshwater creek and tidepools at low tide. The starfish, crabs and eagles are just a few examples of the wildlife on this rugged northwest beach.
This is a great beach all year long. During the summer months visitors enjoy long walks along the beach and hotdogs over the campfire. In the winter it is a great place to go storm watching. You don’t have to walk more than a few hundred feet to witness the crashing waves and drift logs being tossed in the surf.
