Visiting Pacific Rim even on a cool and rainy day in November was spectacular. The restaurant was closed that day, however, it was lovely to hear the waves crashing on to shore, and to walk on the rainforest trail to the beaches. Huge trees, and a very well maintained and clearly marked trail.

Breathtaking scenery. Beautiful ocean breeze and wonderful to watch the surf. On a mild day the temperature is wonderful in February and great place to visit. A must for everybody's bucket list.

Even the rain here is notable: dimension, volume, velocity, sound, direction... There are so many natural wonders to experience in this park and I can't wait to get back

This is a stunning park with long walking beaches and great opportunities to surf the gentle waves of the west coast.

We enjoyed Crystal Cove beach a lot, went whale watching with Oceanoutfitters and walked the Shorepine Bog Trail and the Lighthouse Loop Trail. All highly recommended !
