Photo: Pacific Ocean Scenic Coastline Wave Action

The Pacific Ocean has some really scenic coastline and this stretch along the West Coast at Cape Palmerston on Northern Vancouver Island is no exception. The rocks create some intense wave action as the ocean crashes up on shore.

The Pacific Ocean constantly pounds this scenic coastline with wave action at Cape Palmerston on Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Cape Palmerston is a popular spot for those who know about it, but those who know this area know that the waves constantly pound the coast and that the water can be rather dangerous.

The wave action along the shore is very beautiful however, despite having the potential to be very deadly. As can be seen in the photo, the water is white and frothy as it churns against the rocks and the rocks themselves have been worn down by years of waves crashing up on shore.

Cape Palmerston is about a two hour drive along a rugged gravel road that can be dangerous in itself, but the beauty of this region is well worth the effort. Being out here is like being part of an isolated world. It's beautiful and dangerous but it is well worth a trip to see the Pacific Ocean stretched out in front of you as far as the eye can see with the West coast of Vancouver Island at your back.
