Rathtrevor Beach Fun

Rathtrevor Beach is hard to beat with fascinating tidal lines, warm shallow waters, 23 kms to wander, and a low tide that goes out up to a kilometre. 

Check out Parksville’s tide charts to plan your day, then gather your buckets & shovels for a day of digging, building, swimming, & exploring.

Even more water fun

If you want to explore the shore from the water side, rent one of Beach Acres’ 2 paddleboards by booking when you check in or calling the front desk at any time during your stay. We recommend that you bring and wear your life jacket before enjoying this popular new sport.

$30 for 2 hours
$40 for 4 hours
$60 for 8 hours


Beach Acres Resort’s mild climate means almost year-round golf weather, which gives you ample opportunity to play the five nearby 18 hole courses.

Not a golfer? Enjoy the regional shops and galleries, then rejoin your golfer and hear about the hole-in-one that got away back in the hot tub at Beach Acres.
