Explore our Beaches

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and maintaining access to those beachfronts is important to local residents.

Public access to Comox Valley beaches is provided along road rights-of-way that end at the foreshore. In the electoral areas of the CVRD (outside of municipal boundaries), the rights-of-way are owned by the Province and are under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI).

MOTI does not take an active management role over the beach accesses and many are unmaintained. At the request of some neighbourhoods the CVRD has signed and improved 22 beach accesses in the Miracle Beach, Little River and Royston/Union areas. Look for shore access signs in these neighbourhoods to gain access to the beach. In April the CVRD will begin improvements to create a 19 vehicle parking lot to serve Saratoga Beach.
