Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is a remarkable treasure: 347 hectares of old growth forest situated on one of the best beaches in Canada. It’s no wonder travelers visit Rathtrevor all year-round.

Low tides see the Salish Sea recede almost a full kilometre, with the occasional extreme low tide far surpassing 1000 metres, revealing a seemingly endless silky-smooth sandy beach. In the summers the shallow waters and extreme tides mean that swimming is almost tropical-warm – something fairly unique in the Pacific Northwest.

The park itself is stunning. Majestic old growth Douglas Fir trees have long called Rathtrevor home, with an enormous labyrinth of nature trails linking every part of the park together.

The sun sets behind the park, and if you have the chance, watching the sun go down from a half mile off shore is a sight to behold. It’s beautiful.

Long walks on the beach are a core part of our lives here at Ocean Trails. We invite you to join us.
