Located in Pacific Rim National Park, and situated near the Esowista First Nations Reserve, Combers Beach is a beautiful beach area on Vancouver Island that is particularly popular with surfers. The trail to the beach is short but steep, and descends towards a gravelly path from the parking lot.
To begin the hike, simply follow the gravel trail as it enters the forest and makes a sharp descent, weaving you through the thick majestic trees. (A wooden bench marks a resting spot for the return trip, which is mostly uphill.) The trail veers to the right and continues downhill before reaching a three-way junction. Make sure to go left onto the wooden boardwalks to continue following this trail, where - a short distance away - it exits the forest and arrives at Combers Beach.
