    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 »

    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.

    Pretty walk in the trees. Steep hill at end. This walk takes about 20 minutes from the parking lot to the beach. You are in the trees until you get to the beach, so it might be chilly. The path is dirt, some roots but not many. At the end of the trail, there is a steep hill to the beach. At the bottom of the hill, there are two outhouses. The beach is a pebble beach.

    Heaven on earth. Beautiful crescent shaped beach with lots of sand areas at low tide, with a gorgeous view of the lighthouse on Entrance Island.
