Photo: Beach Sand Details Pacific Coast Scenery

Patterns in the wet sand create unique sand details along the Pacific Coast in Tonquin Beach. This beach which is surrounded by beautiful ocean scenery is located in Tofino, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

These patterns and details are left in the sand after the sea pulls away along Tonquin Beach in Tofino on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
