Madona Beach Resort Parksille Vancouver Island

Located directly on the shore of breathtaking Rathtrevor Beach, this is one of the main reasons people choose Madrona Beach Resort. No matter how you spend your day, our beach is always the favourite part of everyone's stay. To plan your day around the tide, use Parksville’s Tide charts or check the printouts included with your Madrona "Welcome" Guest Book.

Just a few steps from your door will have you...

  • walking barefoot through tidal pools
  • building sand castles
  • exploring coastal marine life
  • enjoying a beach bonfire
  • spending hours beachcombing at low tide as the ocean recedes almost a kilometre!

When the tide rolls in, you'll find the shallow depths are ideal for swimming, splashing and skim boarding, even for the youngest family members. To explore the coast from other angles, take a short trip and experience these nearby beach locations:
