Huge tidal flats stretch for miles north and south of the park entrance. Miracle Beach has great opportunities for building sand castles, exploring tidal pools and examining the ancient breakwater that is home to a multitude of inter-tidal life.  A whole day could be spent exploring or relaxing and enjoying the sun.

During the summer months interpretive programs are hosted by the BC Parks staff at Miracle Beach.  In the past an excellent Jerry Ranger Program has been presented, which includes a series of interactive short courses for kids.
