I will be travelling with my 83 yr old mother to Vancouver Is on Oct 3. She would like to stay on the west coast, gather shells & hopefully see starfish etc along one of the intertidal beaches. We will stay in this area for 2 or 3 days. Can anyone suggest a good hotel that is within reasonable walking distance to a beach where she could do these things? Would we have to rent a car to get from Victoria to the suggested destination or would other transportation be available?
Thanks for any responses.
