A beautiful place to visit any time of the year. It was windy and cold this day. But we had no crowds to contend with. We walked through the huge fir trees and looked out over the beach. There were eagles overhead along with other birds. The pathways were easy to walk for the senior in our party. A pleasant... More

Lots to see on the beach walk & also many interesting paths throughout this large park. Would like to have an opportunity to stay in the RV park.

We were just there as day visitors, but wouldn't hesitate to go back. The beach is such a lovely walk - saw the herring roe washing up on shore and the seabirds flocking to eat it. This is the time of the Brant sea geese passing through on their annual migration and the waters were teaming with them.

Great place for a walk after lunch at the Black Goose. The beach shelves very gently so the tide goes way out.

You must visit if you have not done so before. It is just magical on a sunny day when the tide is way out and starts to come in. Miles of sand. The water heats up on the way in, hot even. It's like the Bay of Fundy in that the tide range can be amazing some times.

Took a walk on the beach - this is a beautiful place! Apparently it's a great place to swim in summer.

Want to see the beauty of ocean, mountains, beach, tides,... this is it. The slope of the beach is so soft that you can watch the tide just crawl up and around your feet.
