An exotic national park, which is also one of the most popular attractions of Canada, the Pacific Rim National Park is a mesmerizing destination

Named after its setting at the brink of the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Rim National Park includes a long strip of the coast. The Pacific Rim National Park comprises of three different areas namely the Broken Group Island, the West Coast Trail and the Long Beach.

The Western end of the park is covered by the Pacific Ocean and the Eastern end is covered by the Vancouver Island Ranges. The Long Beach is the main attraction of the Pacific Rim National Park. The Broken Group Islands has several islets that can be accessed only by sailors and canoeists. The West Coast Trail is a difficult trail but also quite popular. The entire area of the Pacific Rim National Park has become a wonderful place for surfing and whale-watching.

Usually visitors prefer staying for more than a day at the Pacific Rim National Park. You can either get an accommodation in Tofino or Ucluelet. If you are planning a short trip then explore the area of Long Beach where you can enjoy rain forest hikes, strolling around the beach and the tide pools. If you are planning on staying for some time in the area, then there is enough time to enjoy the entire park area.

Visitors who are looking forward to having fun at the Long Beach should visit the area between June and September. In case you are looking to enjoy surfing and storm watching, you should visit the region during winters.

Finding a Masjid and halal food in the area can be difficult. However, visitors can always opt for vegetarian dishes and fish while visiting the area.

The Pacific Rim National Park can easily be accessed from Tofino or Ucluelet. If you are exploring the Long Beach area you will need to hire a car.
