Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park Highlights
Majestic old growth trees, beautiful ocean sunsets and an inviting, wide sandy beach with campsites nestled amongst mature Douglas fir trees make Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park in Parksville one of the premier vacation destinations on Vancouver Island.
At low tide the ocean recedes almost a kilometre, providing an ideal place for visitors of all ages to play in the sand and explore the shoreline. When the tide rolls in over the sun-baked sand, the warmed water is unbeatable for swimming and salt water fun.
Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is ideal for a relaxed family outing. Sit back and soak up the seaside atmosphere or walk through the wooded upland area of the park. All campsites are within a 5-minute walk to the 2 km stretch of sandy beach. The park also features a large day-use area, perfect for an afternoon picnic.
Bird watching is a popular activity at the park, particularly in the spring when large numbers of seabirds congregate for the annual herring spawn. During March and April, Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is one of the best spots on the Island to view the migrating Brandt Geese.
The distance by car from the city of Vancouver is 111 kilometers. The journey time including the ferry is 3 hours
