Beaches & Swimming
Kids swimming (Picture BC photo)
Vancouver Island beaches are among the best in Canada: Tofino (#1) and Parksville (#3) were rated "Best Beaches in Canada" in TripAdvisor's 2011 Readers Choice Awards.
If you love sun, sand and surf, the Vancouver Island region will leave you satisfied. Clean and scenic beaches are scattered all along the coastal shoreline. There are inland lakes, streams and swimming holes aplenty, too. Some beaches offer a variety of facilities, while others have nothing more (or less) than pristine water in idyllic natural surroundings.
For a family outing near lots of conveniences, visit beaches in Parksville or Qualicum Beach. For quiet, natural surroundings with few conveniences, try Long Beach, Chesterman Beach or MacKenzie Beach in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve by Tofino. For something in between, visit Rathtrevor Beach in Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park.
The best time for sunning and swimming in the region is from June through September.
