A beautiful sunny day glows on the rocky ledges of scenic South Beach as jagged rocks line the shores of the rugged Pacific Ocean. South Beach is situated in Pacific Rim National Park on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
Pacific Rim National Park is a combination of three sections, Long Beach, West Coast Trail and the Broken Group Islands. The Broken Group Islands unit is located in the Barkley Sound and has approximately 100 islands and rocks.
Camping, hiking, scuba diving, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking are activities welcomed at the park. Nine walking trails are available to enjoy wildlife viewing. The West Coast Trail is 47 miles long and is known for one of the most challenging hiking trails.
The Long Beach unit of the park is located right on the West Coast and is a combination of coastal temperate rain forest and scenic but rugged sandy beaches. Seals, sea lions and whales are part of the marine life of this park. 250 species of migrating birds have been identified in the park.
