“What a way to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We arrived at the beach around 5:00 pm after a 5 hour drive from Sooke. It was so wonderful to take off our shoes and stroll for over an hour along this magnificent beach. Since the tide was low, we were able to walk across the sand to an island to take in another view of the Pacific. On the way back the surfers were still trying to ride the waves and several folks were out getting their well behaved dogs some exercise. By the end of the walk we were relaxed and refreshed.

Reviewed 28 April 2014

Lots of beach area for the little one to run around. He loved exploring the small rivers and drainage toward the ocean.

“I love walking this beach”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

A great place for a longer walk, especially if you like to watch surf lessons in action! You can start at the parking lots either end (north or south) or make a loop if you want to walk one way along the road. At low tide, enjoy a walk out to the spit.
