French Beach Provincial Park

W Coast RD Juan de Fuca BC .

    Located between Sooke and Jordan River, situated on the scenic Strait of Juan de Fuca on the west coast of southern Vancouver Island, French Beach Provincial Park offers beautiful hiking trails through lush forests, and a sand and pebble beach where visitors can relax and enjoy a picnic or take a cool dip in the ocean.

    In addition to fabulous views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains, the 1,600-metre beach is an ideal location for exploring and whale watching. You may spot roaming pods of resident killer whales offshore, as well as otters, seals and sea lions. In Spring months, keep your eyes peeled for gray whales as they migrate north to find feeding opportunities. French Beach is also a good spot to observe Bald eagles, ospreys and a variety of seabirds.

    French Beach is a great launchpad for further exploration up to Juan De Fuca Provincial Park and surfing at Jordan River.

    French Beach offers year-round vehicle accessible camping in a beautiful natural setting. Facilities include a picnic/day-use area, a sani-station, pit toilets and fresh water.
