Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park


  Rathtrevor Beach is one of the most popular places on Vancouver Island. When the tide is out the beach stretches for about 1/2 mile before hitting salt water. It’s not the type of beach we’re used to but everyone seems to enjoy walking and playing on the sandy expanse. The campground has 208 sites and all are reservable so we did not even attempt to camp there but we did take a walk/roll along beach path.


  The beach path is a little over a mile long one way and travels along the edge of the beach and through old growth forest. At the northern end the beach is covered with round rocks rather than sand. The path is mostly level with a few spots that are rough or sandy. Other trails that go to the nature center and old farm fields are very rough with roots and are not accessible.



  Parking lot #1 is large enough for any RV and is the best lot for easy access to the trail.  Park  49.3207, -124.26556



  1. Yes, it's a pretty spot. Apparently there are all kinds of little critters and shellfish out on the sand flats so it's a good place to go exploring.
