  • An easy mostly flat walk through the forest with exceptional views along the way. Good for all levels of ability and easy access with a small parking area at the trail head.  more »

  • A great way to spend a couple hours exploring a historic part of BC's coastal waters. The scenery transforms every 10 minutes until you reach the end of the rock bluff where hundreds of Arbutis Trees line the edge of the coast. The walk takes about 30-45 min plus viewing time to explore and soak up the "acres of natural gin" as the bench said. Watch for Beavers by the dam. Eagles, ducks, starfish, seal pups, whales and more!!
  • A great place for a picnic or as we did camp for the night on the bluffs right on the ocean. I would advise bug spray or a mosquito net though as they come out in swarms at night.
  • A nice way to spend an hour or two. Easy trails with good views and some nice little beaches. With ice and rain in December it had an eerie beauty.
  • Idealic spot for warm water swimming in summer, and pure tranquility in the other seasons. The best anchorage on the Sunshine Coast.
  • My dog and I had tons of fun climbing around the cove. Gorgeous views. You can take a long time exploring or do a quick loop.
