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.

“Beautiful Sunset”
Reviewed January 16, 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.

“Two marvellous meals with perfect sunsets”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We were there in time for the turkey dinner 3 course meal and it was delicious. We went back on our last night at the lodge and had the strip loin steak. Very tender and tasty, beautiful vegetable accompaniments. I couldn't resist dessert, so I ordered the humbleberry pie. Paired with vanilla ice cream, it was a wonderful ending to a superb meal. We could not have had a better view of the sunset. I think once the staff know you are staying at the lodge, they go out of their way to give you the best seats. Very cheerful and friendly service, even at the breakfast buffet. Now I can't wait to go back again!
