Bamfield

“Bamfield, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, is one of those unique communities rarely found anywhere else. Aptly named the “Venice of the West Coast” prior to roads, it still applies today because there is still no road link between east and west Bamfield or parts of Port Desire. The west side is enhanced by a boardwalk which follows the inlet along the shore for approximately half a mile. By sea Bamfield is 80 miles (128 km) from Victoria, 30 miles (48 km) from Port Alberni and 17 miles (27 km) from Ucluelet. By road 51 miles (82 km) from Port Alberni, 95 miles (152 km) from Duncan via Youboo. Come and experience Bamfield with its culture and history, its recreational opportunities, and lifelong learning initiatives. To quote Kerry McPhedran “Why a trip to Bamfield, Pop. 300? You might as well visit France and ask why see Paris. Bamfield is a tiny, perfect capsule of British Columbia’s west coast that should be a required pilgrimage.” (Beautiful British Columbia Magazine, Spring 1999).”
