Beautiful spot within the city for a walk and to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature. So peaceful and relaxing. A treasure within. Nice spot to pick shells. Stop by you will be happy you did.

A nice little park with an easily walkable trail above the beach. Very scenic with a great view of the ocean.

We always stop here when we have time to kill before our BC Ferry reservations. Beautiful waterfront park to stretch your legs after a long drive. Lots of Arbutus trees and one of the last stands of Garry Oaks on the Island.

I would say no. It is in a protected harbour so not too much for wind and no waves.
