Sombrio Beach on the Pacific Coast

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday was all about sunshine, pounding surf, surfers, and fresh sea air. We drove 2 hours north west of Victoria on the twisty, turny, old Island Hwy to Sombrio beach. Beware, the gravel road from the highway to beach is pitted with dips and potholes that can damage a low riding vehicle. I held my breath for much of it but my Mazda did it!

Sombrio is on the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail..the last beach after French, China and Mystic beach. Its gravelly in many places..no white sand but its beautiful and spacious. The south end has an Oregon coast feel…large black lava rocks and smashing surf. You can camp here…that I want to do. But as September fades to Fall it will have to wait until next year.
