This is a little gem that I had never experienced on my many trips to the area. A short walk and a beautiful bay. Venture further to visit the quaint lighthouse. Worth the walk

Very nice walk - trails aren't marked out quite as good as I would have liked but no big deal. Good views of the bay and lots of Arbutus trees! Check them out!

Half an hour each way, this walk goes past arbutus trees towards a small lighthouse on the point. Beautiful way to spend a morning.

Easy trail which follows the coast line for about 30-40 minutes (each way). Spectacular views. We loved it. Francis point has great spots for picnic or just relaxing.
