Bring your binoculars as you can almost see Japan. Not really but that is the next stop. Can drive to within 100 meters to unmanned Lighthouse. If weather okay a geat place for a picnic. West Coast Trail runs by the Lighthouse. Can be beautiful there with all sorts of weather.

Great place to sit on a rock and view the crashing waves. We did for at least an hour today before taking the walk around

This is located on the Wild Pacific Trail. It is an easily accessible viewpoint with a parking lot nearby. It is even wheelchair accessible. A must see for crashing surf and spectacular sea views. If you visit Long Beach on Vancouver Island you cannot miss this over one hundred year old historic site!

We walked part of the trail to see the lighthouse. Got some great pictures and enjoyed the view. Nothing too spectacular to see.

This focal point is one of the highlights of the Wild Pacific Trail system. Easy walking and paved for wheel chair access. Wonderful views of rough water and big waves when the weather is stormy.
