  • Loved the tidal pools. Lots of anemones. The outhouses were kinda gross but aside from that we had a great time. 
  • This island is ideal for families with children. Just get and and twice taking ferries from Vancouver Island, though there is natural is best. Transparency of the sea is quite high. Just latitude and water temperature is low, every now and then come out and warm up yourself with intense sunlight,. Jellyfish, fish and clams.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful views and white sandy beaches! Not to mention the fabulous island community and interesting places to visit such as the wineries, distilleries, potters and walking trails.
  • Huge beach in protected bay. Water gets to a swim able temp! Highly recommended
  • Amazing beach! Busy on a hot day
  • Amazing beach and views.
