Nice paths, well tended, right by the water, perfect for a morning run or walk. Just a beautiful setting.

We were turned around by either gruff Parks staff or gruff Hydro crews (not sure which), as the wind storm forced a closure of the road. So disappointed that we couldn't visit.

Great photo opportunities! Interesting tidal pools, shells, sea birds, seaweeds, etc. Expect windy and rainy days this time of year.

First time at this park, we went during off season, however the weather was perfect for walking the trails along the beach & wooded area. This trail is set up so that all ages can enjoy the sites & sound of this beautiful park. Lots of parking/picnic tables & out houses (Ha Ha!)

The coastline of Vancouver Island is filled with quiet places - they seem to each have their own charm. Most of them, once you leave Victoria, have quiet. For me it doesn't matter if it is the calm lapping of the waves (most days) or the dramatic surge as the wind picks up - the lack of man-made noise is... More
