Muir Beach is a mix of sand and stone. The first bit of beach you’ll approach is pretty rocky, but it gets better. As you turn right, you’ll notice a point of rocks jutting out to the Juan de Fuca Strait. These are a photographers dream. Keep walking west. Just past this rocky point the beach gets more sandy and the walking becomes easier.
Another 1/4 kilometer west and you’ll start to find a lot of sandstone, which makes for some wonderful photos. The smooth texture, swirls and colours are really cool!
Keep watching the sandstone cliffs, you’ll discover some very unique fossils in the rocks.
