Pronounced "Clay-lock" by locals and meaning "good place to land" in Quinault, Kalaloch Beach and Rocks lie at the mouth of Kalaloch Creek along the mile-wide stretch of Olympic National Park. Sitting just below Kalaloch Lodge + Cabins, Kalaloch Beach is also a name that is often used to refer to the entire 15-mile stretch of Olympic Peninsula coastline that is easily accessible by Highway 101. This beach stretches from Ruby Beach to the north to South Campground + Ashenbrenner Day Use Area on its southern end.
With a shoreline strewn with massive piles of driftwood, the area is an ideal place for casual beach combing and an exploration of Kalaloch Rocks at low tide. These rocks reveal tide pools that are full of marine life, including giant green anemone, California mussels and countless barnacles.
