French Beach Provincial Park - a local favourite

If you travel west from Victoria just a short way past Sooke, you will come to one of the most popular beaches in this area. It is popular because it is huge and accessible. It only takes about 2 minutes to walk from the parking lot down a slight hill to the beach. There are a number of picnic tables and grassed areas for people to picnic or play. The beach is gravel at high tide and has wide expanses of sand at low tide. There are cliffs to the right as you enter the beach and a rocky area by the cliffs that has some tide pools to explore. There is a great campground next to the day use area if you want to stay for a while. It is a great place to visit. Check out the video.
