This park is small but perfectly adequate for a neighbourhood park. There are big rocks to climb on to look across the bay, there are small tidal pools, a few benches to sit on to enjoy the view and also a small swiming stone beach area to take a dip in the ocean. Lots of locals utilize this beach in the summer. I went there today and there were strong winds and therefore significant surf....it was beautiful and a perfect way to blow away the cobwebs of a busy week.

This is a small park in a residential area with a small parking area right on the side of the main road. It’s a short, easy walk to the beach from the road and parking area. If you check the tide charts before you go and arrive as the tide is on its way out there is lots to explore and discover including large crabs of varying species, starfish and anemones. There are usually also a couple of eagle nests with lots of activity. Pretty cool way to spend a couple hours!

This is a small regional park off the end of the Beachcomber peninsula in Nanoose Bay. It is a bit of a drive (about 15 km) from the Island highway on a residential curvy, hilly road. There is no parking lot, just a few spots along the side of a residential street. There's a hilly path down to the water, but it is beautiful! A beach with a little sand, lots of rock and solid rock surfaces to walk on. There are a few benches to sit on, some logs here and there and lots of wildlife - birds, sea lions, eagles. Be careful of the deer on the road in to this area - there are lots in Nanoose. We visit often - it's a beautiful view, nice walk, faces west so lovely late in the afternoon. Definitely the trail less travelled.

We love this park because of its varied terrain. Mostly easy walk but more rugged parts for more adventuresome folks. Very lovely beach on far side

Gorgeous views while listening to seals. A very small park and not suitable for people with walking difficulties as quite steep in areas.

Located almost at the end of the Beachcomber peninsula, accessed via Marina Way, this is a small park that was saved from cottage development. Sweeping views over the water towards Arrowsmith. You might see seals and sealions -- or if you are very lucky, a pod of orcas. Nice rocks to hop around on, and plenty of tidal pools for the kids to poke around in. There is a rough beach area for swimmers. It does'nt say dogs must be leashed -- indeed many are allowed to run free. Great place for a picnic -- but no open fires !

The proper walkway is to the right end of the parking, the left one is quite steep. Neat tide pools, some benches. Great little place to get up close to the ocean with no commercialism.

I've been here on a few occasions but it's not somewhere I would drive to unless I was in the area. It's a point of land, at the end of a road, with large, sloping rock ledges. This is where you walk unless you want to go along a rocky beach. But worth checking out, especially for the views of Rathtrevor beach and beyond.
