Rialto Beach and Photos

Rialto Beach: Info and photo gallery featuring this scenic, sea stack strewn beach located in the Olympic National Park on the Olympic Peninsula coast in Washington State.

This beach is one of thirteen beaches within the Olympic National Park. The very good thing about this beach is that it is readily accessible to nearly everyone, no hiking required. Just park your car, and step out onto the sand. It is but a very short walk to the surf.

The beach itself is an expansive sandy crescent, however it is not without a view of multiple impressive sea stacks, as you will see in the photos on this page.

At 11 miles (17.7 km) away, La Push is the nearest village to this beach in the Olympic National Park.

But the Quillayute River separates Rialto Beach from La Push, which is on the Quileute Indian Reservation. From Rialto Beach, one must take Mora Road back to Hwy 110 (La Push Road) and then turn right (west) to head back to the coast and La Push WA. All that still takes only 18 minutes.

Port Angeles is just 67.6 miles (1 hour 23 minutes) northeast of Rialto Beach. But, if Port Angeles is not your starting point, then:

  • Forks WA is 14.3 miles (23 km) east along Hwy 101, a travel time of 21 minutes by car.

  • Aberdeen WA is 122 miles (196.3 km) away, or 2.5 hours to the south

  • Seattle WA: 150 miles (km), requiring 4 hours and a ride on the Bainbridge ferry if you take the northern route through Port Angeles. Alternatively, take the southerly route through Tacoma, Olympia, and Aberdeen, no ferry needed. This option requires a 225 mile (362 km) drive, taking approximately 4.5 hours traveling time.
