For some beach combing is a natural thing when wandering the pristine West Coast shores near Tofino on Vancouver Island. Tonquin Beach is a sandy stretch of shore right in the popular town with views of the natural scenic beauty which surrounds it.
At low tide, the natural rocky outcrops which dot the sandy beach play host to an abundance of sea life which flourish in the tide pools of these rocks. Sea Anemones, sea stars, and snails are treasures to find when combing Tonquin Beach. While one such tide pool may only host sea anemones, others will host other sea life making for a real treasure hunt.
