Botanical Beach Provincial Park is a 1.9 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Capital, BC and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

Great hike that goes down to the ocean and tidal pools when the tide is low. Interesting tree formations.
A short slideshow video of the Botanical Beach Area -
Gorgeous natural bonzai along a lime stone coast with huge, huge surf.
The trail is well estabilished and not too many folk in the winter, but I'm assuming it would be very popular in the summer.
This is the entrance to the Juan de Fuca Trail which runs down the coast of Vancouver Island from Port Renfrew to Sooke. I would love to do that hike.
Camping is allowed but what you pack in... you pack out.
At low tide there are wonderful tide pools.
