Halfway between the Comox Valley and Campbell River, you’ll find Miracle Beach Provincial Park with a sandy beach that draws sun lovers from all over the world. The beach and park are great for everything. If you want to camp, book early online. Just up from Miracle Beach, where the Oyster River meets the sea, is Saratoga Beach, with two kilometres of sand stretching along the Strait of Georgia. It’s sometimes forgotten on lists of the Island’s great beaches, and for no good reason. It’s got it all, plus nearby private resorts and camping.
