These are more natural trails and for the most part you can walk along the ocean for miles or the beach if you prefer. There was a camp ground for those interested in staying overnight.

Gorgeous / Fabulous - a must place to camp or visit - a kids paradise and easy for parents to watch them as the water never gets more than a few feet deep and the sand warms it up to bathtub temps!

Walk the graveled pathway through a tall forest and open beach and enjoy the breath-taking west coast scenery and wildlife. It's all there and the pathway is well cared for, benches along the way where you can just sit and take it all in. It's especially nice in the early morning. There are several open grassy areas not too far... More

Very nice condo with great ocean views managed by 2 of the most pleasant property managers I have encountered. They really look after the guests. We have reserved for next year already and will be returning later this year. The owners are lucky to have Kristy and Darcy looking after their interests.

If you love nature, low tides and hiking trails, this is the park for you. A very peaceful place to walk and watch Mother Nature at her best! And with the Brant Geese Festival currently on, go watch thousand of migrating geese, ducks, gulls and others feed on the herring roe and rest up until they head north to Alaska... More

Lots of parking and easy access to trails and the beach. We were able to enjoy the Brants! The park is well appointed with washrooms and good signage.

We arrived at the park in our Motorhome whilst travelling around Vancouver Island. The tide was out and Brant Sea Geese were swimming up and down the sea edge feeding on the Herring Roe. It's truly amazing to think these little geese will fly up to high Alaska next to breed. We walked the beach and then along the footpath... More
