Have you ever come across a view so amazing you just couldn’t believe it was real? Located in the northwest corner of Washington state’s Olympic National Park, Ruby Beach is one of those places.Ruby Beach

When the beach came into view from the trail parking lot, I thought I had stepped into a movie scene. In fact, Olympic National Park and the surrounding area was used in the filming of the Twilight movie series.

Ruby Beach gets its name from the rose colored ruby gemstone fragments found here in the sand. This is not a beach for which you come to swim, surf, or tan.  It’s a beach that you come to just watch mother nature do her thing.

Whether it’s a clear day, raining, or even storming, the view is simply stunning.  And the sunsets? Extraordinary!

You need to be ready for a good workout to get a closer look at the sea stacks and tidal pools, as you will need to climb over piles of bleached driftwood to reach the shore’s edge.

Ruby Beach is just one of the many spectacular views you can find at Olympic National Park, located about 3 ½ hour drive from Seattle.
