French Beach

French Beach

French beach is a 5 minute drive north of Ocean Wilderness Inn, on Route 14, towards Jordan River.  The beach is well marked and has lots of parking as well as washrooms and a trailer dumping station.  The beach is an easy walk from the parking lot.  A great place for a simple walk on the beach where you can slip your feet into the Pacific Ocean and play in the sand.

Ocean Wilderness Beach

The beach at Ocean Wilderness Inn is right outside your door.  A short walk through the rain forest and down the steps to the shore. Enjoy the peace and quiet of a summer afternoon on the beach.  A walk along the beach to the right of the Inn you will find a fossil bed.  25 million years in the making, these fossils are extraordinary.  Be sure to take your camera.

Jordan River

Jordan River Beach

The Jordan River campground is just 16 km from Ocean Wilderness Inn. Sunning surfing and camping are the order of the day.  Campground parking spots are $15 a night from April 1st until October 31st.  There are portable washrooms and potable water available in the parking lot.

One of the easiest ways to get to Sandcut beach is to hike from Jordan River, along the beach.  Just find a spot to park close to the south end of Jordan River Beach.  Then just hike south along the water.
