  • Worth my time.... Beautiful views and surprisingly warm water. People swimming with kids. Rocky beach.. Shoes are a must!
  • Beautiful location, great spot for professional photos, scuba diving,widelife,beach front,good place for kite boarding with strong winds:)
  • Sandy beach at all but the highest tide. Can watch ships working in and around Nanaimo from here.
  • Great little walk if you have some time to spare out in Nanaimo. Sidenote: The trail can be a bit slippery when wet so watch your footing.
  • Nice park, but difficult to walk through, and the views at nearby neck point are better
