Hole in the Wall



Activity: Day Hike

3.5 miles, 100′ elevation gain, <1 hour duration, rated Moderate

Rialto Beach is one of those special places that you will not soon forget, tiny little forested islands just off shore, magical sea stacks, stunningly beautiful broad beach framed by green forest, stacks of drift wood, tide pools and the star of the show ‘Hole in the Wall’ a large natural arch.

Strolling along the blue pacific on this magnificent beach, the salted air, the sound of the waves, the cry of the gull and the cool ocean breeze invigorates your senses. Just off shore you will spy ‘James and little James’, tiny little islands lined with ever green trees. Further along the beach you will encounter numerous sea stacks including Gunsight Rock a spectacle to behold. If you have timed the tides correctly and the tide is out then Hole in the Wall, a natural arch, is yours to explore. It really is a gorgeous spot, beyond that are tide pools to checkout and some more beach if you so desire.

Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.
