Beautiful beach, easy hike. Great way to spend on the beach if the weather is clear. The trails is easy and the beach has plenty of spots to check out.

A perfect way to spend your morning thinking about the things that matter to you. The path down to the beach is well maintained and mostly level without many obstacles or steep grades.

I was lucky enough to enjoy the walk without the fog that moved with the tide on this day. The visibility was roughly 40' when I arrived but quickly improved as the morning progressed.

This is an easy hike for all ages.

Thought I was just going to be wandering along the beach, was a lot more enjoyable than I expected. The overland routes were a great surprise. We got lucky in that it was sunny and good weather in the 50-60 range.

Would have brought trekking poles and gloves as was recommended. The beach footing was every type—sand, pebbles, mid and large river rock, boulders, igneous type and low tide had seaweed.

Awesome. I hope I get back there sometime!

nice hike, decided to backpack in and stay a while. amazing sea stacks and whales spouting just off the beach. little steep at the beach head, use the ropes for stability

Great sandy beach, amazing views. Pretty easy hike.

Absolutely magical! First time, will be back..,!

Amazing views. Great walk at low tide. Plenty of driftwood on the beach. Short walk down through the woods before reaching the beach.

Awesome hike! The walk through the woods is already fantastic and you haven't even gotten to the good part yet. Was pretty calm: only ran into six other people.

Stunning views of the sea stacks and ocean.

It’s a great hike down to the beach but is almost entirely downhill. Once reaching the bottom, there are large amounts of driftwood to navigate before reaching sand. It’s truly a sight once you’re on the beach. The only let down was some trash from humans. The walk back was entirely uphill and tiring. The trail is one lane only so sometimes you have to stand aside to let traffic pass. Be prepared to be a little wore out after traversing sand and the uphill climb combo

Best place on the planet

We hiked here in May 2017. It was a cold and drizzly day, but the hike itself to the beach was pleasant. The beach was so neat! We were there at low tide and got to see the tide pools and all their little critters. I wish it had been a bit clearer, as we couldn't see out into the water very far, but it was still a great experience. And it was amazing how cold that water was!

Been coming here for about 20 years. It's so beautiful and a family favorite. We decided to backpack this time with our 3 kids ages 14, 12 and 8. Easy enough for them. However, I have never seen it as busy as this time. Crazy amount of people hiking down with coolers, cases of beer, etc. Thanks to the internet, this place has gotten very popular. Which makes me wonder about the cleanliness of this beach after tons of people have camped on the beach and left garbAge and their poop behind. There was so much human feces barely buried under the sand. Something needs to change.

Just wonderful!

Love, love, love. My 3 children and I go hiking here every year for the 6 years when we visit the PNW. Also visit 1st and 3rd beach. There is a local restaurant on La Push and if you are lucky enough to be in the area for the Quileute Days...fireworks and all

This was an easy, fun, relaxing hike. We did the hike on a weekday afternoon and it was not too crowded, but the crowds were increasing when we left at 5pm. There was a porta potty at the trailhead.

Two nights here was the highlight of our trip down the coast. We went during the week and missed the crowds.

Beautiful place and plenty of parking

Very peaceful and awesome beach.

Short hike (maybe cause I jogged it) but very eye opening once you make it down the sleek (it was snowing) steps...spits you right out on the beach...stacks to the right and second to the left are scalable and beautiful views from up top...it was hailing/snowing while I was on top of the stack with made it EPIC!!

Short climb down to the beach, and then just run around the beach exploring. Beautiful. Not crowded at 8am on Saturday in December.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever laid eyes on. We've talked about flying back across the country solely to spend a couple weeks hiking the area. We were there in April and had beautiful sunshine, though per the locals it was the first sun they had seen in 13 days.

Must see!!!! Good hike, not too hard! Worth the trip:) love love love this beach!

The actual trail is only .7 miles to the beach. The rest of the hike is South down the beach. It ends when you can't go any further because of the rocks and terrain. Basically where the beach ends. Still really pretty and a nice walk. Plan your trip durning low tide to see all the tide pools and little creatures living in them.

Very beautiful area, with the added bonus of a nice walk through the wood, (a few steps in the end before the beach, not a favorite of my wife), Arrived to late to explore the beach to much, but it did give us one of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen! (Don't forget you have to walk in the woods to get back to your car, make sure you have some kinda light, it got VERY dark in the woods after sunset)

We were fogged in but it was still warm and beautiful and the kids played in the surf.

Wonderful experience and great personal challenge to keep going.

This was a spectacular trail. In my opinion, it is more beautiful than the Hoh Rainforest. When you reach the beach it's simply breathtaking. I thought it was pretty easy with some climbing but there is no rush. You'll want to move slow to take it all in.
