Easier to get to than some parts of BC that I’ve painted

Sandcut Beach is on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island, along the Juan de Fuca Highway between French Beach Provincial Park and Jordan River.  It’s about a ten-minute walk in from the highway about 30 kilometres past Sooke. There's even a boardwalk to get you over the thick beds of moss and ferns in a rainforest of giant cedar and Douglas fir.

The picturesque and very paintable falls have cut several channels through the protruding layer of sandstone high above the beach.
