Kalaloch and Hole-in-the-Wall

Posted by on August 4, 2014 at 4:35 pm

From Kalaloch Lodge we drove north for about 45 minutes to Rialto Beach to time our beach walk with the tides so we could reach Hole-in-the-Wall. It’s 2 miles each way, so you have to leave AT LEAST 45 min to walk the beach up to Hole-in-the-Wall and get there by low tide so you […]
