There is something unmistakable about the rugged, windswept terrain and moody coastline of Vancouver Island off the west coast of Canada, and Mystic Beach is unparalleled. The isolated and serene locale can be reached by foot for the adventurous traveler. A journey through miles of verdant rain forests of grand cedars and moss-covered maple trees reveals the brilliant beach. Marked by rock grottos, a cascading waterfall and timeworn driftwood, the romantic locale is a perfect spot for an intimate elopement and picnic on the beach.
