Botanical Beach on Vancouver Island
A unique part of Vancouver Island featuring spectacular wild coastline with colorful ocean tide pools & surfing ducks!
We head out from Victoria over to the west side of the island near the town of Port Renfrew for a hike down to a remarkable beach.
Located in Juan De Fuca Provincal Park. Botanical Beach is home to tantalizing tide pools chock full of marine life. The pools are carved out of ancient sandstone and act like crystal clear natural aquariums.
Also, as chance would have it during my visit, some cute Harlequin Ducks showed up and did some surfing in the ocean waves. They are quite the nimble little critters.
You'll see footage from the approx 2.5 KM loop trail through the coastal forest, panoramas of the fantastic seascape, and close-ups of the tide pools. Enjoy!

Ray, Very nice. Can't wait to visit Vancouver Island.
Its a beautiful place, was spoiled growing up here. As I age I see it in a new light, great to revisit places and share. Cheers, Ray
HI Ray, We are planning on a trip to the Northwest in the near future and Vancouver Island is on our list thanks to you. We have a 38ft 5th wheel and so plan on parking it near Port Angeles and spending a week on the island coming over thru Victoria. We have been watching your videos on the island and looking for places to stay while on the island. Would love to bring the 5th wheel but cost over and back are prohibitive but we may find out that it's not as we keep exploring. Keep up the great work and giving us plenty of ideas. Who knows, we may just end up never leaving! Blessings, Doug
