Rialto Beach starts at the mouth of the Quillayute River and extends 4 miles past sea stacks and tide pools. The winter months bring heavy storms which can be enjoyable to watch, as well as rewarding. Be sure to watch for Japanese blown glass balls, used as fishing buoys. As the beach turns northward, Cake Rock is the massive sea stack that rises far up out of the churning sea. Dahdayla Island is also a sight to see but is much closer to the beach.
