  • Lovely oceanside walking trails. In Spring the wild flowers are amazing with carpets of camas and lilies! 
  • We stop by quite often. Very interesting vegetation and a great place just to go for a walk. Open all year. Highly recommend. 
  • Here's a pleasant place to visit, year round. After you've parked your car, you'll see the shallow lagoon on the left, and the ocean on the right. With the mountains of mainland British Columbia ahead...  more »

  • 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
