    Beautiful Bay with a superb sandy beach. Crystal clear water, flat bottom and clean sand. The Bay is surrounded by stone cliffs and has a Crescent shape. Free parking and toilets. A great place to visit in the summer. The size of the beach changes in tide and low tide, but always enough space. Near stone boulders children indulge with sea stars, which are plentiful lie on the bottom. In a 5-minute drive from Little Tribune Bay, little brother of the beach where nudists settled and hippies. Worth a visit both places.

    Went here on a windy day in June. Wind was cool and the water rough. Long sandy beach and a lot of driftwood where you could shelter from the wind and still sunbathe. Left the car in the parking lot a...  more »

    This island is secret.I've lived on Vancouver Island for almost 15 years and over looked coming over here.I now know I have some catching up to do.The pace is slower and that's not a compliant. The park regional park is huge and well worth to take. Some great spots to get those nice shots.The Hornby Island residents are lucky and good on them. Came over on my ebike and now I have to come back. More exploring to do and more pictures need to be taken.

    Gorgeous white sand beach. There's not many on the inside coat and this is the nicest. Summer time has nice warm water.

    Place is awesome. White sand beach makes you feel you're somewhere hot. Great place for the kids to run around and play in the water too.

    Beautiful beach and spot for a dip!

    Having gone at the end of July, the whole place was over run with families, children and large groups, so that there was really no peace to enjoy the beautiful setting and Sandy beach. Also, we hate that the beach isn't dog friendly, even if they are leashes. Pretty spot though, just not worth it with the crowd.
