If keep on driving another 5-10 min west and you will be at China beach/ Mystic Beach (30 min drive from the house) it has both the camp ground area/beach and the hiking trail area which is one of my favourite about (40 min hike in the beautiful west coast rainforest) and you end up at the beach with wonderful waterfall. Another 15 min drive further west will be Sombrio Beach (45 min drive from the house) also surfing and hiking trails and finally 1hr drive will bring you the the community of Port Renfrew well known for it's famous West Coast Trial, Botanical beach known for the tidal pool at low tides and storm watching in winter time and Avatar grove (Canada's largest gnarliest tree).More
