Chesterman Beach has two sections but is really one long beautiful beach. Both are sandy and are enjoyed by visitors and locals alike. The North end boasts a lighthouse with rocky islands and lots of sand to play in or walk on and hard pack sand to run on. The two sections connect by Frank Island. Surfing is popular for beginners and experts on both North and South Chesterman Beach. Aka Chestie Beach.

Directions from town. Walk/bike/drive south along Pacific Rim Highway and turn right on Lynn Road just past the Dolphin Motel. There are no signs so watch for the crosswalk with the light and that’s Lynn Road. Parking lot with washrooms and showers is at the corner of Lynn and Lynn Road. Yes that doesn’t sound right but you’ll see what we mean. Parking is free.

Difficulty is 1/5. Both hard and soft sand. Entrance may be a little uneven but we’ve seen wheelchairs on the beach and the short path to the beach is wide and level.
