Parking is a little limited, not good for large RV's. A short walk down to the beach on an easy trail. Bring a picnic and sit on the drift wood that is everywhere, forced down streams during spring rains. Not far off rt 101. Best...More

We spent an entire day exploring this beautiful beach. You do need to get there early to get a parking spot. We spent the entire day crafting and building “our summer home” out of driftwood. It says Schwartzkopf across the front. If it is still...More

Easier access than Second Beach with wonderful views. Some driftwood but that was fun to explore too!

A picture perfect beach ... It has a few rocks in the water, a little creek, a lot of driftwood, a cliff behind, some pebble and some sand, easy access ... I wish the water were warmer, but otherwise - as good as it gets!

Ruby beach is really amazing. Has a nice mix of the coast, with all the drift wood and even some "lake" in between the forest and the coast. Really beautiful to see and of-course lots of great picture opportunities. Quite easy to access too. I...More

I love to tide pool and this was a pretty good spot. You can walk out to the little baby islands and see tons of star fish. A beautiful spot

The walk to the beach is amazingly picturesque. Our photos came out wonderful, but did the actual scenery no justice. Jutting chimneys on the beachhead topped with foliage and crested around its waterline with barnacles was fascinating. Whales were swimming close by, the forest sits...More

We spent about 5 hours there for photography. Maybe an hour or so. Just be careful of the driftwood that you have get over to get to the beach. Factor in some extra time for the tide pools.
