Rialto Beach, Olympic National Park
(4.7/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Take in the spectacular driftwood formations at Rialto Beach, a pebbly beach contained within Olympic National Park. It can be a bit of a scramble over logs and rocks to reach the beach, depending on the tide, but you'll be rewarded with great views. The picturesque beach offers a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean from Washington's west coast. The driftwood, both onshore and offshore, casts interesting patterns on the ocean's surface. Photographers will enjoy spending time playing with angles and perspectives offered by the intersecting pieces.
