Washington Beach is among the best in the country.
Ruby Beach in the Olympic National Park took first place on Tripadvisor 2022 «The best of the best beaches»In the United States.
The 10 best beaches were selected “based on the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings” of Tripadvisor users from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021.
And Tripadvisor looked not only at the warm sandy beaches.
“We know that the perfect day at the beach looks different from person to person. Some like the classic soft white sand and sunbathing, while others like to explore the rocky bays, ”said Tripadvisor Global Media Business Vice President Christine Maguire in a February 23 press release.
Room 7 Ruby Beach is not like a tropical beach in Hawaii and is not as warm as the coastlines of Southern California.
It is rocky, covered with pebbles and has high sea stacks.
But “The scenery is unreal,” said one reviewer.
Many reviewers recommend going on a sunny day and in low tide detect starfish and other marine creatures.
«What an absolutely stunning beach! Rock formations, snags, smooth stones, tidal pools … the photographer’s dream, ”another reviewer said.
“No matter how spoiled and exhausted we Coastal Californians were, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we witnessed and felt the grandeur of this pristine and enduring beach,” wrote one reviewer.
Reviewers also suggest bringing a jacket and staying away from “brutally cold” water.
Ruby Beach is approximately 125 miles northwest of Olympia.
Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area in Puaco, Hawaii, ranked No. 1 on Tripadvisor’s 2022 Best of the Best Beaches list.
