Easily accessible, this untouched, rugged beach along the Olympic Peninsula lets you capture vast views of the wild Pacific Ocean ebbing and flowing gently against the massive sea stacks.

How to get there

N47° 42' 44.3304"W124° 25' 00.3324"
This image was taken on Ruby Beach, looking onto the sea stacks, on the Olympic Peninsula.
To reach this spot, park at the Ruby Beach Trailhead, just off Highway 101 (south). The beach is just a short five-minute walk from the parking lot (47.709709, -124.413903).
Once you get to the beach, head north toward the sea stacks. Go over and through all the driftwood and then walk down the beach. Reference the GPS in satellite mode to see where I stood on an elevated rock on the sand.
