Landing Comments:

Broad exposed sand beach. W aspect. Large rock reef at centre.
Expect surf. Swell above 1.6 m from most directions gives dumping surf, more difficult at low water. Bay ends reduce surf, in particular S end. Vessel traffic. Beware of surfers closer to beach.

Camp Comments:

No camping permitted. Toilets, water at N end by tsunami warning tower.

Other Comments:

Combined N, S beaches 2.7 km long. Residences. Wickaninnish Inn.
Parking at Chesterman Beach N & S, with a few spots at Middle Chesterman. Roadside parking permitted on beach side where indicated.
