Schooner Cove is a sandy beach destination located in the Pacific Rim National Park near the communities of Tofino and Ucluelet, British Columbia, Canada. The beach is one of the lesser known beaches in the park located in a small cove at the north end of Long Beach. At low tides one can walk the beach and connect to Long Beach.
Schooner Cove is sometimes referred to as the romantic beach because of its intimacy, small crowds and local geography surrounded by rock outcroppings and dwarfed trees.
A 1 kilometre boardwalk trail connects visitors to the beach. There are stairs to navigate for accessing this beach so it is not baby stroller or wheelchair friendly. Also watch your footing as there are slippery sections when crossing wooden bridges.
The trail forest cover is thick full of ferns, mosses and lichens. Even on sunshine days the forest leaves drip with moisture from the mist in the air.
Activities enjoyed while visiting the beach include picnicking, suntanning and beachcombing. Many select this beach because of the marine scenery the cove has to offer.
All visitors to the park must have a Park Use Permit.
