Landing Comments:

Potentially difficult surf landing, light to heavy depending on conditions. N, S ends more protected, may be calm. S corner has hook for additional landing protection.

Camp Comments:

Entire expansive sand beach suited to camping. Random wilderness camping allowed. Open air toilet. ‘Fingers’ at N end (rock bound coves) popular camp location. Please use animal-proof steel food bins at N and S ends of bay.

Other Comments:

Water at creek in centre of bay. Attractive long sandy beach. Hiking trail across S Vargas I. See Vargas Island Provincial Park. We have created a Vargas Island webpage with information about Ahousaht passes and a link to the Ahousaht map where there is allowable camping and day use. During the COVID-19 pandemic, camping is restricted to Vargas Island and Robert Point. Day use sites off Vargas are Whaler It and Blunden I. N & E Meares I are open.
