Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park

4.8
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.

  • Turning the corner at Ruby Beach was breath taking. There were at least 15 foot waves on the day we went to visit. Simply a breathtaking site!  more »
  • Plan your hike according to the tides. It’s a great hike. Wear water proof foot wear. We saw sea stars, not a lot,but some, sea urchins. Loved the pelican fly overs.  more »
