Landing Comments:

Very low gradient broad mud beach. SE aspect. Exposed to S, SE. Beach mostly floods. Some drift logs.

Camp Comments:

No known camping. Ahousaht requested no camping here. Rocky bluffs impede upland access.

Other Comments:

Attractive. Stream at head of bay but might be difficult to access. 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.
