In a large part, it is the varied and scenic natural environment that makes Metchosin such a desirable place to live. Rocky shorelands and sand beaches overlook the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains.

Rare plant communities flourish within the wooded uplands, and creeks and streams roll through the lowlands to the sea.
