Relaxing and good for families

A perfect place for spending a day with other family members. Kids will love the beach side and the octopus slide. There are a lot to do for kids.

This is one of the best playgrounds for kids! It has so many things to play on and is different than any playground I've been to. It has a zip line, an octopus slide, a dragon, a shark, a sunken ship. This is in addition to regular swings, and even disc swings. The kids had so much fun here. It's... More

This beach is easily found from the road. Lovely beach for bird watching, sea view. Driftwood is plentiful and we have seen seals from the beach.

A wonderful location. Beautiful scenery, views of mountains. Close to lots of things like swimming pool, shops, bars, restaurants, even a Starbucks if you are that way inclined. Local shop and liquor store. The Pub Smugglers Cove wasn't child friendly and was unwelcoming. Would recommend hiring a car to get around then you can visit, mini golf at blinkinsop, or... More

Low tide or high tide. This is a must. It is such a beautiful place to go to if you want to sit and relax at the beach,walk your dog or just relax and listen to the ocean.

This little park has a little something for everyone, it is located along the water! There are changing rooms/ washrooms / shower area to clean off the sand from the beach. Picnic tables nicely located around the play areas, which have lots of great activities for people of all ages to enjoy. They have sand castles built in a fenced... More

I loved this beach, I spent hours in the ocean looking at the beautiful views and all the nice sailing boats in distance, spent lots of time building sand castles with my young niece. Had a great time!

nice little beach, The pub near here is pretty good. Decent little field to throw a football around on and actual sand as opposed to just rocks for a beach.
