Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park has a large beach where we will explore the shore for unique sea creatures or play some games. At low tide the beach can be 1 km long, when the tide rolls in over the sun-baked sand, the warmed water is unbeatable for swimming and salt water fun. After some time at the beach we will make our way to Paradise Fun Park where you will have the option to play one round of mini golf and try the bumper boats or if you prefer not to get wet on the bumper boats, you can choose to do two rounds of mini golf (18 holes per round). There’s no better way to beat the summer heat on Vancouver Island than playing a few rounds of mini golf, followed by splashing and bashing in the bumper boat pool. Paradise Fun Park features two unique mini golf courses: “Turf’N Surf” which features an old waterwheel, lighthouse, windmill, village church, and a Victorian mansion. The second, with its pirates’ theme “Treasure Island “ you’ll putt across the galleons deck and peek into the skeletons’ treasure cave.
