Great beach. It stretches from the small parking lot by the side of the highway to the South Beach Campground, which makes for a lovely one-mile walk each way on the sand. The ocean looks beautiful in this place. The wind was strong.

Oddly enough, this was busier than Rialto Beach - probably because of the nearby RV and campgrounds. Plenty of neat tidal pools and rock formations to climb over if you walk north. "Tree Cave" is near the beach entry.

Pretty easy hike. We had several small children under the age of 10 with us and older folks in the 50's that all went along. Lots of things to see as far as tide pools and water enemies. there were a few small caves and water falling along the way as well.

First to Review

Hiked several of the WA coast beaches during a December trip to Kalaloch. We had surprising clear mornings for hiking, and some Pacific storms in the afternoon. With a roaring fire back at the cabin, and a good book we were content to watch the surf and storms roll in.
