August 2017. We did 5 days of out-and-back day hikes on the Juan de Fuca trail from the various trailheads. Two of those days started and ended at Sombrio Beach -- one eastward and one westward. Sombrio is a very nice and very long beach,...More

This is one of my favorite beaches to date. When you first get onto the beach it is a bit crowed, however once you get past that it really opens up. Which I loved, it was nice to get away from the crowds. The hidden...More

We went one way as there is a west and east side. We got to cross a suspension bridge. Next time we would do the other side and find the hidden waterfalls.

Such a great escape from civilization with surfers and great falls. I miss the old surf shacks back in the early days before it came a official park. Terrible drive and hike when wet but so worth the views. Nice private oasis for romance too.
