Landing Comments:

Exposed to surf, some submerged rocks. The SE and NW beaches offer more protection.

Camp Comments:

Random wilderness camping. Entire beach suitable for camping. Most popular places are SE end, NW beach or near information kiosk, tent pads, bear cache, pit toilets on SE beach.

Other Comments:

Attractive. Water at year-round stream crossing centre of W (Fourth) beach. Also seasonal creeks at other beaches e.g. near SE site. Avoid private residence at Fourth Beach – W’most beach, Camp instead on W side of stream or in another bay. Whale viewing. Wild Side hiking Trail to Ahousaht village has $25 trail use fee (2018) for area outside park. No camping fees (2018). See Wildside Trail for more info. See: Flores Island Provincial Park
