This is a place of wild natural beauty rather than the typical beach crowded with sunbathers. Misty, foggy, craggy, with dramatic terrain and wild surf crashing against the rocky and log strewn sand. Sea spouts, churns, tidal pools, sea creatures, all to explore. Hike or...More

Just an incredible stretch of coastline! Don't let a little fog stop you. Really adds to the drama of the coast.

Beautiful coastal area to visit. Take hiking boots or shoes with a very sturdy sole or the volcanic rock will bruise your feet.

And worth the stop if driving thru. There are multiple scenic trails and great points of interest including a blow hole, the Devils churn, etc. You'll want to have sturdy shoes and a sense of adventure to explore around for a while. Just be prepared...More

We have been here on several occasions but had never ventured down to the beach. We took the trail down to the cove and found this amazing beautiful beach. The whole are is great for walking and photography.

A short hike takes you to this scenic spot. Around high tide you can see water spouting from the cracks in the rocks, Devil’s Churn.

Words cannot describe and cameras do not do justice to the dramatic splendour of Cape Perpetua. Here, visitors can take in the drama of water churning and spouting at Devil's Churn. The visitors's centre is one of the most easily accessible viewpoint for an overview,...More

Gorgeous place to stop and see the beautiful look out inside. They can also help you plan a hiking trip. It was cold and rainy so we just looked around inside. Lots of informative info and local plants etc.

It's not a virgin old-growth forest, but it is still a gorgeous and accessible place to wander for a day, with paved and dirt trails to the crashing surf. Wildlife, too!

Yes, dogs are permitted in the campgrounds but as noted must be leashed. I took my dog on the short hike to the Oldest Spruce, on leash of course, as well as to the various trails by the viewpoints. There were folks taking... More
