Landing Comments:

Popular surfing beach. Might be difficult for canoe, kayak landings in heavy surf conditions. River mouth gives easier landing opportunity. Steep in places. Mixed cobble, sand.

Camp Comments:

Camping permitted beach camping pads at W end. Bear cache. Pit toilet. Camping fees apply year-round. May pre-pay permit via Internet, but no reservable sites. Fee $10.00 per adult per night (2018) via BC Parks Backcountry Registration System.

Other Comments:

Well used by hikers. On JDF hiking trail. 1-2 km to trailhead vehicle access. 500 m carry to beach from trailhead. See: Juan de Fuca Provincial Park .
