Botanical Beach Provincial Park near Port Renfrew BC on Vancouver Island

We just visited Botanical Beach (2-3 km) and walked 20 minutes down a good trail to the beach to catch the morning low tide.  We recommend exploring the tide pools at Botanical Beach when the tide is 4 feet (1.2 m) or less at low tide.  You can check the tide tables at local marinas, ask almost anywhere in town, or go on-line to the Fisheries and Oceans Canada web site.  Botanical Beach is a mystical shoreline that faces Juan de Fuca Strait where it empties into the Pacific Ocean.  If you get a blue sky day it is outstanding.  If you get a grey day it is spectacular.  If you get a windy day it is a great sight but the tide pools might be a bit cloudy.  Any day is a good day.  The scenery is inspiring, the tide pools are prolific and intriguing to explore.  Be sure to take time to sit down and relax and absorb the whole experience and enjoy the serenity around you.  You will quickly realize that this is a very special place.  Botanical Beach Video   Youtube Video You can read our complete article about Port Renfrew and go to our Facebook Page for more pictures of Botanical Beach and Port Renfrew.
