PARKSVILLE, BRITISH COLUMBIA
Rathtrevor is a great family beach getaway, in the town of Parksville, which has lots of kid-friendly activities and a number of beachside resorts and campgrounds. The 5 km-long beach has oceanfront trails and is part of Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. The Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition takes place at Parksville beaches each summer.
