Attraction details
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.

“Great for a long walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Visited at low tide and was able to take a long easy walk on the compact, wet sand. The weather wasn't great, but still really nice to walk along the ocean, watch some surfers, and breathe the fresh ocean air.

“A Magical Beach for Walking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Long Beach is true to this beach location namesake. You can walk forever and be surrounded by the beautiful Pacific Ocean, forest, and fun people. I am not a surfer, but it was fun watching the folks enjoying the waves. Lots of places to play in the sand.

Parking is limited, so arrive early or pull a Doris Day! (she always had a parking spot wherever she arrived in her movies!)

“Wild and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Sand as far as the eye can see and the beautiful coast of Vancouver Island. The kind of ocean that surfer's dreams are made of. The surf was not up when we were there but still, a place like this tugs at you.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Long beach was huge and absolutely beauty, the sunsets were amazing. The pictures that we took turned out so nice. Everyone is so friendly. I would suggest at the very least talking a walk down the beach and checking out all the surfers - what a sight!
