Sunset at Second Beach in Washington state's Olympic National Park
La Push Beach is a series of beach chains called Beach one, two, and three. Beach one is fourteen miles, beach two is thirteen, and beach three is twelve miles away from the town of Forks, located along the Pacific Coastline of Washington State, near the most western point of the continental United States. The beach's most prominent natural growth is the Sitka, Spruce, and Evergreen trees that populate the shore.
Trails to Second beach start at the Quileute Indian Reservation, and span a mile before you reach the coast. Second Beach is the longest and flattest of the three beaches and is the most populated. Though within a mile of First and Third beach in each direction, north or south; they are inaccessible due to the protruding headlands and steep bluffs. Half a mile offshore is an archipelago. Sea stacks are mixed throughout the small islands and are known as the Quileute Needle. They are part of a wildlife preserve called; Quillayute Needles National Wildlife Refuge. The wildlife protects coastal creatures including but not limited too; seabirds, oystercatchers, and gulls.
La Push Beach has recently become a more known beach due to popular culture. The beaches are part of the setting of the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer which were recently made into movies. Through Forks, the town of which the book is set, there are Twilight shops. There are no shops in La Push, because every business on the reservation is privately owned. First beach, more specifically, then became a more popular destination to fans of the Twilight series.
