This beach was the end point of a day trip we made
from Victoria, stopping by Hatley Castle and the
Fisgard Lighthouse along the way.  The beach has
several interesting features: a walk through a
pretty forest to reach it, a rocky area, a sandy area,
a small waterfall, interesting driftwood, and big
rocks to hop on between waves.  The view of the
Strait of Juan de Fuca and distant Olympic
mountains is spectacular.

I know so many residents of Seattle who have
visited Victoria, but never leave the Inner Harbor
area.  China Beach is one of the reasons to bring a
car, spend longer than one day, and explore the
