“pacific coast beach”
Third Beach, the southernmost beach, is a 1.6-mile (2.6 km) hike from the road with views of Strawberry Bay. The hike is mostly level but can sometimes be slippery and somewhat dangerous due to the harsh coast weather. Third Beach is one of the Olympic Peninsula beaches which tend to consist of seastacks and driftwood. In the isolated non-developed cove at Taylor Point, there is a waterfall that falls directly onto the beach where tide pools are also featured on the north end. It is located on Olympic National Park's Pacific Ocean coastline, reached by a trail through the forest from near the Quileute Indian Reservation town of La Push. Being the Third Beach down the La Push coastline, it is the most secluded. However, there are multiple camp sites that put campers within 5 minutes' walk of the ocean where Teahwhit Head blocks the way to Second Beach. There is also a boiler in the swamp by the 1.5 miles (2.4 km) trail to the beach from an abortive oil exploration in 1902.
Great view! Long Walk. We stopped here because my daughters wanted to. The Twilight movies reference La Push, even though the reference is to first beach we stopped at Third beach since it was on our way. The 1.5 mile hike in was beautiful - I loved it. The wife and daughters were a little put off with the distance and 'unconnectedness'. It was worth the hike. We met several head back in and out who were camping on the site.
