“Beautiful vistas”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

The 5km loop walk around the park provides beautiful scenes at every turn. We especially enjoyed the bluffs, with the colors of the grasses, ocean, and rocks giving us pause to stop and take in the views of a truly beautiful part of our country.
Good ferry service to the Island makes for a really enjoyable day trip.
Bring a picnic lunch if you are coming during the off season as there was only one spot to grab a bite.

Reviewed April 8, 2012

What stunning views are to be had at this provincial park.... Watch out if you are taking your dogs.... Not all dogs are kept on leads.... And if you are licy you will run into some fantastic young musicians!!!
