Not the greatest sandy beach, but a great spot to explore, turn over rocks, count the starfish, etc. The remnants of the old sawmill are really cool. Good kayaking spot, but be wary of the insane boat drivers whipping through here with no regard for...More

Nice walk along the water. Good view of the inlet, as well as the Indian Arm. On a nice say, you can see snowy peaks up the Indian Arm inlet.

Went here for a few hours after watching our daughter figure skate at a competition in Burnaby. Very relaxing, lots of parking, and picnic areas. Watched the jellyfish from the shore. Wasn't crowded at all.
