Landing Comments:

Moderate gradient gravel beach with some larger rocks at low water. Steeper gradient with small patches of gravel, larger rocks, boulders, bedrock at high water. Protection from S by islet, rocky tombolo. Approach only from N. Watch for offshore rocks. Landing not obvious when arriving from S.

Camp Comments:

On gravel, shell beach top between islet, tombolo. Appears to be above most summer tide peaks but one party camping at Springs in mid summer reported only marginal clearance. Up to 4 potential forest upland sites located 50 m N of tombolo would need heavy tree debris moving, brushing.
