Easy walk with forests and water views.
Jul 2020
We just walked the loop trail which starts near the picnic tables and it's an easy 1.5 km flat path through the forest with views of the Cove and boats anchored there. The trail leads you to a nice view of the rapids at Boat Passage, which is where skilled kayakers and small boats pass between Saturna Island and Samuel Island. The trail is suitable for young families, people with walking challenges and there are benches along the way. Saw lots of happy dogs on leashes going for walks too. Plenty of car parking and a bike rack too!

Nice trail
Jul 2019 • Couples
Easy access. Relatively short trail. Highlight is a rocky point where you can watch a strong tidal surge through a narrow channel. Well worth a stop!

Lovely anchorage
Jul 2018
Great little anchorage and sneaky pass if you've got the wherewithal, just go at high-slack. Be careful of the shallow areas, and talk to your neighbours about how much rode they have out as people often foul here.

Nothing interesting
Jul 2018 • Family
An average park with a marina, there's not really much to see here other than the short hike that is worth while.

Nice anchorage

Nice scenic anchorage while passing through the Gulf Islands. There is shore access, and a dinghy dock, on the south side of the cove.

BEAUTIFUL
Jul 2018 • Family
The scenery- the tranquility- the crystal clear water - the beautiful sunshine made for a great day for a hike and swim in the water - no garbage along the path - amazing given the amount of people

Nice view and cool scenery

Nice view of Georgia strait and there is a nice 1.5km easy to walk trail which goes through some very cool ecosystems. Picnic tables come with a view.

Very Restful except on Canada Day
Jul 2017
Year round this is a spot of tranquillity and beauty. On Canada Day they do a Lamb Bbq that should not be missed it is vibrant and fun for the entire family and the food is great.

My Favourite Spot on the Island
Aug 2017 • Couples
You just have to experience it, do the Salish trails, take the time to meander through the self guided walking tour, take a break sitting at the point, bring a fishing rod or camera. Watch out for the Stinging Nettle, it is not dangerous (unless you are allergic). Its and easy walk and wheelchair accessible (some little hills, but mostly low rolling grades.

quiet, scenic
Jul 2017 • Couples
A good place to put in your kayak and a good place for your picnic lunch or dinner. Protected bay for easy boating.
