Located in Pacific Rim National Park these beaches are about 3 kilometers north of the Tofino-Ucluelet junction. Heading north from Ucluelet turn left on Wickaninnish Beach Road and follow that until you reach a T-intersection. The Kwisitis Visitor Centre and access to Quisitis and South Beaches are to your left. Parking lots with washroom facilities and beach access to Wickaninnish Beach are to your right.

Wickaninnish Beach is home to the Pacific Rim National Park's Kwisitis Visitor Centre and the Wickaninnish Restaurant. It is the most southern end of Long Beach. Wickaninnish Beach is a great place for beach combing, picnicing and surfing. Travel north along the beach and discover the natural sand dunes.

To get to South Beach find a trail behind the Kwisitis Visitor Centre. This trail becomes a boardwalk before reaching a fork in the trail. Turn left to follow the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Trail to the Florencia Bay parking lot and turn right to continue to South Beach. South Beach is picturesque with a sandy and pebbled beach. It also features interesting grey rock formations and is a ideal for watching the waves surge and spray up on the rocks.
