“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

It's about a 10 minute hike through old growth forrest by a high bluff, but then a huge expanse of sand and rock beach opens up. We rarely see anyone else. There's a gorgeous view of the lighthouse on Entrance Island and the snow-capped mountains of the mainland beyond. Water is pretty cool year round though.

“2nd Most beautiful beach on Gabriola Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Lots of parking, follow the signs to get there. Hidden from most tourists, this beach is a stunning place to be. Not busy, lovely sand, warm water for great swimming, peaceful. Walk down a large hill to get there and bring some food and water and stay all day! Nobody bothers anyone there. There are tables if you wish to eat sitting off the sand. I would say this is a must see, however, not wheelchair accessable. Enjoy your full day here!
