Ruby Beach is one of the most well-known and highly anticipated beaches to visit along the Olympic coastline. A short trail 0.25-mile nature trail from the parking area leads to the beach with several rock stacks protruding from the beach and just off shore.

Like virtually all beaches on the northern coast, Ruby Beach has a tremendous amount of driftwood. It is notable for the number of sea stacks there. The beach is so called because of the ruby-like crystals in the beach sand. Destruction Island is located about 4 miles southwest off the beach. The island and the Destruction Island Lighthouse can be seen from the beach.

Second Beach, Third Beach, Ruby Beach and many other coastal wilderness locations are also excellent places to view inter-tidal life in the Washington Area.
