About Vancouver Island North (Long Beach)

Long Beach is actually a series of beaches stretching for over 10km (6mi), where usually mellow waves provide an endless choice for the many surf schools that operate on this stretch. Closes-out when the waves get overhead and there can be some currents and rips, especially around Incinerator Rock.

Lifeguards have been removed due to Parks Canada funding cutbacks, so you're now on your own.
