Photo: Wickaninnish Beach Driftwood Picture

Wickaninnish Beach is no stranger to driftwood as this picture clearly demonstrates. Due to the movement of the waves on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, driftwood often washes up on this beach.

Wickaninnish Beach is covered with driftwood, so much in fact that the sand beneath can barely be seen. In the background lies Wickaninnish Interpretive Centre, which is a must-see for tourists and visitors as it will teach you all about the rich heritage of Pacific Rim National Park.

Wickaninnish Beach is located in an area known as the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve so it is an area of protected and transition land used to develop sustainable land practices. The beach is a great place to spend a day out with family and to visit the Wickaninnish Interpretive Centre.

The Wickaninnish Interpretive Centre, which can be seen in the background of this photo on the right just behind the tree, is an educational visit for the whole family, as it will teach you all about the natural and cultural heritage of the Pacific Rim National Park. ... continue below the picture...

... It is only open from mid March to Mid October as during the winter months Wickaninnish Beach is often deserted due to the cold weather and rougher seas. During the summer however, when the sun is shining, there are more visitors to the beach and the Interpretive Centre.

Many beaches along the West Coast contain piles of driftwood as the seas are so rough and logs are floated down the river as a means of transport, that some often go astray and end up washed up on the shore. On Wickaninnish Beach they are not cleared away so they are just left in a pile, but that can make it much more fun to climb over and explore. This beach is very popular as it is easily accessible and is very large and forms part of Vancouver Island's largest sand dune. It has the best of both worlds, with fine sand that is perfect for taking a walk and sunbathing, and the driftwoods logs, that are perfect for climbing and exploring.
