Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Tried surfing here in October, we saw the locals sitting in their trucks in the rain staying warm and dry while they watched the swells..probably thinking what are those 2 girls doing out there! It was a great beach, clean and beautiful!

“Foggy but still cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Although the weather wasn't great we did see 4-5 surfers attempt to surf. That was cool! Couldn't see them very well tho.

“Beautiful Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

As the sun sets, you will see the colourful clouds being reflected on the water. A post-card perfect view. If you are lucky you will see baby crabs running round on the sand.
