If you’re ready to explore some of the most scenic marine trails in the province, Juan de Fuca Park at the southern tip of the Island is the ideal place to start. Known for its vast array of ecological marvels ranging from rich tide pools to old-growth forests, Juan de Fuca is a world-class destination year-round. Though the area really comes to life during the warmer months!

Whether you want to catch some waves on a surfboard or hike through 47 km of wilderness, there is plenty to do for every outdoor enthusiast here.

Campers will find over 140 campsites at the China Beach Campground, and hikers can journey across the famed Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, which follows 47 km of untamed wilderness from Sombrio and China beaches to Parkinson Creek, and the spectacular Botanical Beach.

The latter is home to some of the richest tidal areas along the west coast, which means visitors have a great chance of observing unique marine wildlife and sensitive ecosystems, especially during low tide!
