In depth of winter (December-February), Vancouver Island, located on the west coast, forms the front line for very spectacular storms. With only the Pacific Ocean between the island and Japan, these storms grow to unprecedented raging giant with meters high waves smashing against the shore. Although occasionally a bit exciting, it is so incredibly worthwhile to visit the beach and experience the power of nature. This is one for your bucket list!
