this gorgeous beach which at low tide is like something out of this world. The sea stacks and anemones with starfish were awesome. We wandered the beach through the driftwood and just soaked in all of the beauty around us. We had about 45 minutes...More
I originally visited this beach is July of 2011 with two of my kids and two grandkids. At that time it was a minus tide and a large part of our visit was exploring its tidepools and making extravagant designs in the soft sand.
We explored this beach the second day of our stay at the Oceanside resort. Not that long of hike to the beach but what a beach it is when you get there... spectacular.. go if you have the chance, very nice exploring...
Long hike up and down hills, but the beach is absolutely beautiful. It is unlike any east coast beach or any beach that I have ever seen. Several groups camping out on the beach for the night, however, we being in our 40’s where not...More
The beach is about 3/4 mile from the parking lot, but then you need to climb over a whole bunch of tree trunks to get onto the beach itself. It's worth the work, but we didn't know we would need to climb over them.
I strongly recommend Second Beach for its numerous photo opps, especially at sunset. The beach entails a 7/10 mile hike in, which can be exhausting due to the steps when you exit the beach in failing light. The beach is sandy and easy to walk...More
We did the hike to Second Beach and really got a kick out of it. Keep in mind that it does descend down and what goes down must come up. But it is worth it because the hike and beach are amazing and fun.
We stayed at Quileute Oceanside Resort on First Beach (highly recommend!). This is just a quick drive from there.You take a nice hike through old growth trees and then climb over huge logs to get to the beach. We went at low tide to see...More
Getting here was a relatively short hike. Great views. Getting to the shore requires you negotiate over many washed ashore trees. Watch your footing. I didn't notice the sand covering the debris and slipped. Luckily I still bounce :) Very scenic!

Hi belmonted. Here is the info from the nps website. We're from Florida, too, and this is totally unlike anything we have here! Very much worth the short hike. nps lists the difficulty as easy, but if you have any mobilization issues, it wouldn't be easy. Also, check the tide tables and be sure to go at low tide to see all the creatures in the tidal pools!
