China Beach on the Strait of Juan de Fuca

China Beach near Jordan River on southern Vancouver Island, is part of the Juan de Fuca Provincial Park.

A good trail leads down through rain forest to a long sandy beach, fairly steep but well graded and suitable for day and family hikers at any time of the year.

This popular and sweeping beach is about a 15 minute hike down, and a 25 minute climb back up to the parking lot.

China Beach is the eastern trailhead for the 47 kilometre Juan de Fuca Marine Trail.

Driftwood adorns the shores along China Beach

Beachcombers should remember that China Beach falls within Juan de Fuca Provincial Park, and therefore shells, stones and marine animals may not be removed.

There are toilet facilities available, but no camping is permitted.

From Sooke, travel 37 km on Highway 14 towards Port Renfrew. The turn off to the China Beach parking area is 4 km after the Jordan River bridge.
