Easier access than Second Beach with wonderful views. Some driftwood but that was fun to explore too!

A picture perfect beach ... It has a few rocks in the water, a little creek, a lot of driftwood, a cliff behind, some pebble and some sand, easy access ... I wish the water were warmer, but otherwise - as good as it gets!

Ruby beach is really amazing. Has a nice mix of the coast, with all the drift wood and even some "lake" in between the forest and the coast. Really beautiful to see and of-course lots of great picture opportunities. Quite easy to access too. I...More

I love to tide pool and this was a pretty good spot. You can walk out to the little baby islands and see tons of star fish. A beautiful spot

The walk to the beach is amazingly picturesque. Our photos came out wonderful, but did the actual scenery no justice. Jutting chimneys on the beachhead topped with foliage and crested around its waterline with barnacles was fascinating. Whales were swimming close by, the forest sits...More

The beach is accessed by descending a hill and stairs. Then you must climb over quite a number of huge driftwood logs. It was high tide and very crowded when we visited. It appeared to be a beautiful location, but we just timed our visit...More

I would say 45 minutes to an hour and a half. Not a far walk to the tidepools once you re on the beach, but you could spend a long time looking at all the amazing creatures and rock formations.
