There are some beautiful beaches, hikes and experiences to be had by all those looking for them.
Brady’s Beach is just a short hike away from West Bamfield and is one of the most beautiful beaches on the West Coast. It is not a difficult trek to get to the beach and well worth the journey. It is recommended to get fuel and to eat before heading down the gravel road into Bamfield and we are happy to host you and help you with your plans.
On Vancouver Island there is only one known traditional first nations village and still has significant standing houses remaining. A national historic site, visitors are encouraged to hike the trail in and take in the culture while enjoying the beautiful scenery and seascapes.
You can also book a Kiixen Tour where you will be guided by guided by Huu-ay-aht Traditional Knowledge Holders on a 4-hour journey through the lush forest and to a stunning protected beach with tidal pool features. This is one of the most highly recommended things to experience in Bamfield and we would love to hear all about your experience.
