Florencia Beach

Florencia Beach is a sandy beach located in the Pacific Rim National Park very close to the community of Ucluelet. The beach shoreline, in a small cove, includes big rock outcroppings, piles of driftwood logs and a sand and pebbled beach.

Of all the beaches in the Pacific Rim National Park, Florencia Bay is one of the lesser known beaches therefore is less populated.

The pebbled and sandy beach is covered with massive rock outcroppings and cliffs. The rock forms pose as tall monuments at low tide, sending shadows across the beach. And when the tides come back in, especially in the storm seasons, the waves crash and bang sending mist into the air and tossing logs onto the beach.

During the summer months Florencia Bay is an ideal destination for activities like swimming, sand castles, picnicking and beachcombing. Prior to the beach in the trees are some picnic tables.

Very nice sand
