“Stop and marvel at nature's handiwork”

Arches Provincial Park
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 24, 2013

There are two huge rocks that have eroded in such a way that they look like two arches have been carved in the rock. Just off the highway, it takes only a few minutes to admire these amazing rocks, take pictures, and stroll along the shoreline in front of the "arches". I highly recommend that you stop and look --just to look at the rocks without walking will only delay your trip by two minutes.

There are also "toilettes" that can be reached either by car or by walking up a wooden boardwalk. They are privies. On the day we were there, nature would be a better smelling choice.

We stopped here en route to bigger destinations and loved it. The arches were awesome. You could climb under and on them. The path down was through a fragrant fir patch. A stand of dead white trees was eerily beautiful. Plentiful picnic tables.

Beautiful stop along the highway. Years of wind and waves have carved and continue to change these beautiful arches along the beach. Great spot for a picnic or a walk.
