Things to do at Rialto Beach

Rialto Beach is in the famous Olympic National Park (so you’ll need to pay the national park fee), which means there is an abundance of nature for you to explore. Be cautious in and near the aggressive waters here, but the views of this rocky beach are not to be missed. Make sure to find your way to Hole-in-the-Wall, a stunning trail that ends in a massive rock archway. In the winter months, temperatures in the Pacific Northwest can be particularly chilly and wet, so be sure to pack accordingly. The Hoh Rain Forest is also close by if you need a break from the beach.

Affordable restaurants in Rialto Beach

Three Rivers Resort Restaurant offers famous burgers and seafood at impressively low prices to fuel you after a day of adventure. The West End Taproom is another popular option if you need to quench your thirst with an ice-cold beer; there’s an extensive beer and wine menu plus snacks like paninis if you need something to munch on.
