West Coast Trail

Juan de Fuca Provincial Park // Port Renfrew

The rugged West Coast Trail is a hike for the adventurer. With wooden ladders and suspended boardwalks, this trail leads to some of Vancouver Island's most beautiful and secluded shorelines. You can find the start of the trail at Botanical Beach or China Beach.

Juan de Fuca Marine Trail

Juan de Fuca Provincial Park // Port Renfrew

Just around the corner of the West Coast Trail is the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. However, the best part about this trail is not the beautiful boardwalk, it's the fact that it leads to Mystic Beach. Yes, the beach with the swing that you've seen everywhere on Instagram.
