Facing the open Pacific, the park consists of three sections: the West Coast Trail, the Broken Group Islands, and Long Beach. The Long Beach area is the most accessible to most visitors of the park. You can reach it by car and tour its 20 mile length. Walk its hard-packed sand surface and see sea lions, seals, porpoises and orca whales.
The wooded areas house blacktail deer, bald eagles, and numerous other birds. Slickers, rainhats and warm sweaters are recommended for this very rainy coast. The Long Beach road doesn't always run along the shoreline, but access roads to the beach can be found. To see the many bald eagles of the Broken Group Islands, hire a boat in Ucluelet. Bring binoculars or cameras with telephoto lenses.
