Why Camp when you can Glamp. Your first time camping or your 100th, you'll never want to do it any other way again. Your private oceanfront Glamping site, on Mussel Beach, Vancouver Island, has a fantastic view, trail to the beach and a fire pit. A requisite hammock hangs nearby to enjoy the ocean breezes. All our glamping lodgings have kitchens and heat.
Enjoy nature and the sound of the ocean while sleeping in a queen bed with luxury linens. Enjoy preparing meals in your outdoor kitchen. You don't have to go anywhere!
We welcome you to visit us at Magical Mussel Beach.
Just Chillaxing on our Deck.
We never tire of sitting and watching, whales, eagles, bears, mink, birds, birds and birds.
High Tide at Mussel Beach
The tides here range quite a bit. From high up the shoreline to well below the tidal pools. So much to explore!
Our Local Sea Cave to explore!
Our local Sea Cave - about a 45 minute walk along the beach. A fairly easy hike over rocks and logs. Just keep an eye out for bears and wildlife. The cave is a sea cave and is washed out every winter high tide. You can access it at low to medium tide. Bring Headlamps (provided in our accommodations) because it goes back 150 feet and for those more adventurous, you can crawl under the rocks to find more caves.
Sandy Low Tide
This year we experienced some fantastic sandy low tides. The powerful winter storms bring all kinds of offerings to us. These low tides are amazing places to wander and contemplate how Lucky we truly are!
Fantastic Tidal Pools
Mussel Beach has the most wonderful tidal pools to come and explore!
Being remote and oceanfront means we are sharing our area with so much wildlife! From mink and otters to eagles, bears, whales, and sea lions, we are regularly on the lookout. Each tent is supplied with a steel bear cache for this very reason.
Vancouver Island Wilderness Glamping
Come explore the magic of Mussel Beach on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Off the beaten path.
What some of our wonderful guests have had to say about glamping at Mussel Beach.
You won't be disappointed with this experience! Everything advertised is accurate, and I would say even a bit too modestly advertised. The views are spectacular, the accomodation is so cute with such attention to detail! It has everything you could possibly need, with lots of perfect little touches. Even a propane fire pit (my heart skipped a beat when I saw that we could still have a safe fire during a fire ban!). Just lovely! And the hosts Mark and Danielle are great! Thank you very much!
Omg! I can’t say enough about how much we loved our stay here. It is an absolutely beautiful location and the set up is amazing ! You will want to keep coming back and stay in each and every site. 2 days was not long enough… The hosts are extremely helpful and available for anything you need. Already planning our trip back.
Vancouver Island, Canada
its a wilderness campground. if u love animals (eagles, sea creatures, anemones, minks, bears,...) you will have a blast. the tent is beautifully furnished, comfortable bed,...) the camp offers warm showers. the kitchen is fully equipped. but u have to respect the wild animals and act accordingly.
