  • Great Fall walk, views were great the trail was perfect and the beach at the end would be well worth a summer visit!  more »
  • This park is beautiful and was so calm and quiet even on a beautiful July day. We are so glad we made the trip and highly recommend stopping at this beautiful beach!  more »
  • There are two beaches across the road from one another. One is sheltered and filled with sea creatures--sand dollars, tiny crabs scuttling along the sand, clams and scallops creating little volcanoes ...  more »

  • great walk in the forrest/beach. leaves cover the rocks on the path so it might be a bit slippery when wet. 2 outhouses and a beautiful view. only downside, again locals don’t follow the dog on leash rule
  • Easy walking access. Beautiful views. Luxurious sandy beach. Quiet. Family oriented.
  • One of the best views on the island! Look all the way across the strait to the Mainland. Otters and seals often seen playing right off the shore, they watched us while we picked up shells. Best place on the island to find sea glass, especially after a storm, as the deep water here holds many treasures. Smooth sandy stretches interrupted by glacier rocks that are fun for kids to climb. One of our fave spots. Please treat the beach kindly as the environment is sensitive, with fish spawning beds 1k offshore.
  • Ten minute hike from the parking lot, but worth it. Great sand beaches, relaxing. Places with shade too, if you don't want to be in the sun.
  • Awesome beach for the morning, brutal hill to climb up and over to get there. Don't take much gear with you. A wagon is a liability not an asset...
