Reviews we had read on Rialto Beach were so good we were somewhat disappointed. The fact that it was rainy and overcast (surprise, surprise) did not help with the beauty of the scenery.

This beach has very nice views of the Ocean. However, I did not enjoy this beach. It is very rocky instead of sand, making it difficult to walk on the beach. However, it is very easy to get to.
