Well worth the visit for the vista and the walk along this unspoilt beach offering solitude and a place to relax and reflect. There are interesting things to find along the beach and you feel at one with nature.

If you want to stay closest to Rialto Beach then check out Olympic-National. It's located at the entrance to Olympic National Park and only 2 miles away on a 28 acre property bordering the Park.
