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.

What an amazing place. This beach is magical. Absolutely stunning. Makes me want to leave the city and move to the coast. Close to Tofino and Ucluelet. Great surfing. Awesome beach walks.

Our first visit to Long Beach has left me wanting to come back again soon. We visited during low tide and it was breath taking. Easily accessible for those with mobility issues - it is spectacular!

It started to rain sadly and the tide came in quick but it was amazing to walk in and around the drift wood, look at all the shells which had been washed up and head off on a long walk down long beach. Nice picnic area sheltered by the trees and the car park is a short walk away. You... More

A gorgeous stretch of beach that goes on and on. We walked during a fairly decent rainfall and it was still beautiful. Pay parking right beside the beach closer to the north end with toilets.

This is a beautiful long beach but is very busy all the time. As it is in a national park one has to pay to use it.

What a wonderful sandy beach. Can see for miles in either direction. Fun to search through the drift wood. Lots of surfers to watch. Beach and bathrooms were very clean.
