Princess Louisa Inlet , a remote place on the west coast of British Columbia, is a mere gap of six kilometers long and just a few hundred meters wide and may possibly be be one of the most beautiful places on earth. It can only be reached by boat or float plane and it lies at the tip of the long body of water called Jervis Inlet.
In 1919 a young man named James MacDonald discovered, fell in love and filed for ownership of the lands surrounding the inlet, with Chatterbox Falls at it’s head. Later in 1953 MacDonald transferred ownership of these lands to the Princess Louisa International Society.
The sheer cliffs rise a mile high, straight from the water. All around is the thick rainforest; the trees are tall and their trunks are covered with greeny/blue moss. The forest glades are deeply shaded and one half expects gnomes, elves and fairies to appear from around the trees. The tweeting and chattering of the birds are constant. It is a truly magical place, restful and tranquil.
Everyone should be fortunate enough to see Princess Louisa Inlet, The Princess as MacDonald referred to it, at least once in their lives.
