    In my opinion this is one of the best beaches in Washington. It is about a mile and a half hike (really more of an easy strolling beach walk) along Rialto Beach to Hole-in-the-Wall, which is a rock arch that has been carved out by the surf and only really accessible at times other than high tide. The rock formations are fantastic. Be sure to check the tide schedule so that you can fully enjoy it, otherwise your visit will be more difficult. If you go at low tide on a decent day, you won't be disappointed because the sea life is so abundant. At low tide the tide pools are just amazing, with a great variety of sea anemones, starfish, mussels, crabs, and other sea critters. Cormorants and gulls are plentiful. There are also bald eagles often soaring overhead or in the trees, and they are always exciting to see. Leashed dogs are allowed but only as far as Ellen Creek. Pack out your garbage and keep this special place beautiful and pristine.
