A beach walk at Long Beach, Vancouver Island

On the way from Ucluelet to Tofino, along the shoreline is the Pacific Rim National Park. There are beautiful beaches surrounded and protected by the dense temperate rainforest.

We dropped by at Long Beach and walked for a while. A Parks Canada personnel earlier told us that the beach might be “crowded” with surfers. However, it was late afternoon and hardly anyone on the beach. The very wide white sand beach continued endlessly (16km long). Despite the sunny weather the water was apparently around 13 degrees and definitely too cold for pleasant swimming. Some surfers were trying out to get on waves and a couple of people were walking, but the further we went, the fewer people there were and we almost had the beach to ourselves…
