Look for the Side Ledge
Oct 2021
To echo other reviewers, the rock formations were beautiful. Definitely worth a visit. Easy and short access from small parking lot. Low tide is best time to visit. Reminder: There are 2 spots to view the rock formations. The main spot is in front of you as you walk down from the path. The more dramatic spot (where you see everyone's photos with the high outcrop) is accessed from a narrow side ledge (on the left side when you are walking down). We almost missed it. We were standing in the main area and wondering "This doesn't look as dramatic as all the photos we've seen". Then we turned around to go back up and accidentally discovered the side ledge. That led us to the high outcrop. The ledge is on your right hand side if you are turning around to go back up the path. Seeing the graffiti and etching made by past visitors were disappointing.

It doesn’t take long to explore, but it is well worth the visit. Easy access from the parking area. This is a stunning viewpoint.

I visited the Galleries when they were called Cave of the Winds back in 1947 and I was 8 years old, 74 years ago.

Amazing place

Take the time to walk down to the galleries. It is not far from the parking area and definitely worth the time. Wear good walking shoes as the ground is uneven

Amazing little spot

Just amazing to see the galleries and to walk within the formations themselves. Be careful with young kids for sure but we’ll worth a quick half hour visit or stay and enjoy some time there as we did.

Worth having a look
Aug 2020 • Couples
We spent our day on Gabriola visiting several of the places suggested and we quite enjoyed this particular attraction. Beautiful ocean views, as well as seeing how time has eroded part of the shoreline area. Certainly worth the effort to find it on the map and stop by.

It's a natural wonder, not an art gallery

If you're on Gabriola Island, it's worth your time to visit Malaspina Galleries. It's a sandstone formation, carved out by waves. The view of the Strait of Georgia from the peninsula above, and from the galleries, is worth the trip. The Galleries are one of a kind.

Spectacular rock formation
Aug 2019
The sand stone caves are truly beautiful. They are fairly easy to find. We were lucky enough to visit on a sunny day which enhanced the features in the Galleries.
