16/23.- Vancouver Island, Long Beach


Continue onward driving north and then west and you will find Pacific Rim National Park, or Long Beach as it is known to locals. It is a 510-square kilometre reserve situated 337 kilometres northwest of Victoria. It is obvious to see why the area is called Long Beach and why it is such a popular getaway for locals. Visit the beach on a cool morning and you emerge from the forest to be confronted by a ghostly mist blanketing kilometres of brown gritty sand leading to dark choppy water. Along the treeline are long chaotic lines of driftwood reaching as far as the eye can see.
