China Beach is a beautiful, sandy beach that seems to stretch on for miles! The surf pounds on the way to the beach in typical West Coast fashion. The trail down to the beach is a wide, fairly well maintained one with some steps closer...More

About 90 minutes West of Victoria, there is not much on the South coast of Vancouver Island other than lots of trees, windy road and wonderful country. Just past the village of Jordan River (one cafe and not much else) are the turn-offs for China...More

This is a bit of a drive but totally worth it! After you walk about 15 minutes down a well looked after path, you walk out into paradise. You feel miles away from the rest of the world (cause you kind of are). It is...More

We were there end of November. It was cold and wet but there were surfers out there. We parked and watched the surfers. It was fun to see them It's a beautiful place to take a break.

If you are travelling on the Island and cannot make it to Tofino, China Beach is a nice alternative. It is on a much smaller scale, of course, but the beach is stunning and the trees magnificent. It was about a 15 minute walk down,...More

Even in the off season when this place can be rather stormy, it is still a great place to visit. The beach is a mixture of sand, grit, and pebbles and it certainly not a golden, groomed beach for sunbathers (thank goodness!). If staying at...More

Nothing but incredible things to say about this campground! It was clean, private, spacious and surrounded by beautiful forest and ocean...all ready to explore! Not only was the price incredible, but we were within walking distance of some incredible beaches. We stayed two nights (end...More

Dogs allowed on a sandy beach-rare! It was great, even in the rain. There is enough shoreline at low tide for a decent stroll. Water cold, but could tolerate wading. Great forest with large trees on the way down to the water. Bear and cougar...More

Nice hike in through beautiful forest, a little steep in parts but not too bad. Very nice sand beach. Would be a great place to spend a day. We went on a cool day but really enjoyed it anyways.

Stone and sand beach. Lots of sand compare to others. Very quite. Easy 1/2 km walk. Water too cold to swim so bring a picnic.
