Top 5 Best Beaches in WA according to TripAdvisor:

1. Ruby Beach

"My wife, two sons (14 yrs. 12 yrs), and I drove all the way from Port Angeles, WA to visit Ruby Beach. It's a delightful spot that is well worth your time. ..." - TripAdvisor Reviewer

2. Rialto Beach

"There's something magical about Olympic National Park and Rialto Beach is the epitome of that magic. I've seen plenty of white sand beaches (and even silver sand, black sand, and glass beaches) but something about this beach has so much character...." -TripAdvisor Reviewer

3. Alki Beach

"Nice little stretch of beach to stroll along that offers great views of the water and a Seattle city view. We stopped for a bite to eat a great Mexican restaurant. Glad we visited." - TripAdvisor Reviewer

4. Long Beach

"We visited Long Beach to check out the kitschy alligator man at the nearby Marsh Museum. We walked around town, and decided to walk out to the beach to check it out. To our amazement, we found out that you are allowed to drive on this beach! It’s the longest drivable beach in the US (second in the world). We did have a car that had a sand mode, but we did not use it. The beach is firm and flat. Incredible experience!" - TripAdvisor Reviewer

5. North Jetty

"We stopped to walk along the jetty and enjoy the beach. The massive rocks protect the entrance to the harbor, and we ended watching the waves crash against them. The broad sandy beach is popular and busy with picnics, kite fliers, and surfers." - TripAdvisor Reviewer

Now get to planning your next Beach vacay!
