Around B.C., there are so many secret gems that you have not yet discovered. One of these spots is so breathtaking, it looks like it's straight out of a movie. Did you know there is a hidden cave waterfall at Sombrio Beach? The best part is, you can actually visit it!
Less than two hours away from Victoria, you can head to Sombrio Beach in Juan de Fuca Provincial Park. The area is famous for the rocky beach that is popular with surfers.
To find the entrance, you'll need to do a bit of searching. Otherwise, you might miss it!
To start, head to the Sombrio Beach Trailhead and follow the path until it splits. When the route divides, go left until you reach the beach.
Once you arrive at the rocky beach, turn left again and continue for a few minutes. Eventually, you'll see a small stream coming out of the trees, and this is where you need to begin searching.
Following the tiny creek, you'll come to a moss-covered cave, and you'll be able to step inside.
Inside the lush cavern, you won't believe your eyes. Plants cover the walls making it feel like a tropical oasis, and a little further in you'll discover the massive falls.
It is so gigantic that the rushing falling water will tower above you. You'll certainly want to make sure to have your camera ready to capture this unique natural wonder.
As the cave is very wet, make sure to use caution as it can be slippery inside.
Along the rest of the route, you'll get to enjoy relaxing at the beach and even crossing a suspension bridge.
