Overview
More
Long Beach, the longest beach of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, spans an extraordinary 16km (10mi) along the west coast of Vancouver Island. Described by locals to be magical, you will be astonished by the amount of life that call the tidal pools home. You will be sure to find crabs, shells, starfish, sea urchins and much more. As the surf comes crashing in, you will find surfers from around the world carving through the peaks of the waves. As the water settles, it gracefully rides up the beach with peaceful trickles and shimmering light from the breathtaking sunset crossing the colourful horizon. Long Beach is truly a rejunivating getaway for all ages. Whether you're looking to kickback, explore, adventure, hike, surf, or just take one of those long walks on the beach, Long Beach has it all.

Great place to walk and look at all the driftwood and sea birds and watch the ocean waves. Be sure to mind the tides if you are taking a long walk.

Stunning especially at high tide. Lots of parking and easy access. Great place to spend the day when the sun is out.

Beautiful beach and camping at green point. Whales off shore, bald eagles in the air. What more do you need?

Long Beach is located within a national park which means you’ll be paying to park there, but it’s worth the cost. It’s absolutely gorgeous. The beach is popular with surfers and you can walk as much or as little of it as you like.
