After a short walk we enter the beach and join the cold water. The views are awesome and great. The time is running if you enjoy the Beach and the sun. Thanks for this nature gem.

Agree with another who mentions that getting there is tricky due to poor road signage — perhaps that helps with the nonbusy-ness of this beautiful destination. Signs at the parking lot.

A nice car park with signs leads to a lovely walk along the coast to Francis Point which has great views. Relatively easy walk about an hour round trip.

This is a unique park due to the cliffside trail that winds along a bluff looking out over Malaspina Strait. It is quite breathtaking but somewhat technical footing so proceed with caution.

Beautiful secluded natural marine park. Easy coastal walk through tall trees, wonderful coastal views, rocky beachs and platforms, and a stunning grove of arbutus trees on the point. Dog friendly..must be on lead.

Loved this walk!!! So beautiful! The coast I this area is spectacular, so much rock, moss, even saw a couple of seal swimming below us! The lookout spot to the left is amazing! Worth the climb to just take a few min to take it...More
