This is Brady’s Beach near the delightful Bamfield community. Brady’s would rate highly on anyone’s list of beaches. Western exposure, remote, wide sandy beach, view of the Broken Islands, tide pools teaming with sea life…
But there’s quite a bit more than the photo above shows. Take a short walk south to what appears to be the end of the beach and you’ll start seeing sea stacks with gorgeous beaches in between.
That third stack in the distance—with the single fir—is on the beach you enter (in the top photo above). Keep exploring south; there’s lots to discover. If there is a checklist for beaches, Brady’s has pretty much all the boxes checked.
So there’s a teaser. Perhaps these photos are best used to remember what you saw there in person. A low(ish) tide and a sunny summer day worked well for our visit.
This remote west coast sand beach near Bamfield, BC is 1200 meters long and 200 meters wide at low tide. This is also the northern end of the famous West Coast Trail.
The Huu-ay-aht First Nations community operate a campground along the edge of the beach.
