Absolutely stunning. Came during the summer at sunset, and it was just as the other Roadtrippers say - breathtaking. Definitely worth the stop, even if you are short on time, please do it!

Ruby Beach is absolutely worth stopping for while in this area. The pictures don't really do it justice. There are excellent photo opportunities both up near the parking lot and down on the beach itself. When we arrived, the tide was coming in and we decided to stay on one side of the water and forego the walk down the beach. The views are fantastic here and the kids loved climbing on the driftwood. If you can catch the tide at the right time you can see some cool sea life and seashells.

Amazing beach with black sand and clear water and crashing waves. It also has abundant tide pool life including hermit crabs and starfish along with multiple types of colored fish.

A favorite stop. The sand is the best I’ve ever felt. Go see starfish and other sea creatures! Wish I could have stayed longer

Beautiful! All times of day. We even went after the forest fires and it was still stunning. There weren’t many people here and was fun climbing around during low tide. Great phot op.
