The draw of Ruby Beach, WA is the beautiful moody weather and the natural goodness that includes unique marine life, one of a kind rock formations and plenty of places enjoy some Washington style outdoor therapy. Learn more about Ruby Beach from our friend Shelby (@handzmade).
What's the must do and see here?
There are some really beautiful rock formations along the coast if you walk a little ways. I think just by themselves, those structures are definitely worth the trip up there.
What makes this a special place to connect with nature?
This place was on the top of my bucket list when I bought my first camera. I have always loved the gloomy diffused lighting that seems to surround that area, so it really meant a lot when I finally got the chance to spend some time there.
Favorite memory here?
I had the chance to road trip up from LA with some of my friends from school, and we spent an entire entire day taking photos, building structures on the beach using the huge pieces of driftwood and the beautifully smooth stones that are all over the place.
