Partially hidden access in at Southey Point Road and Sunset Drive. A few meters up Southey Point road on the right is a trail marker (small orange diamond on tree) which indicates the start of a 45 minute trail of moderate difficulty that winds its way through a pretty and interesting forest down to a gravel/sand beach on Trincomali Channel across from Wallace Island. Depending on the day, you may see freighters, sea mammals, and birds. Interesting rock formations at right. A sand bar (sometimes there are two) is revealed at low tide.This is a particularly magical beach on sunny summer afternoons, when hot sandbars warm the rising tide, allowing for balmy swimming and paddling. There is a small rock wall which is just the right size for beginning boulderers. A calm estuary is the perfect place to skip stones, but please do so quietly or disgruntled neighbours may appear. Expect afternoon sun, and a hike back up to your car. Good picnic spot for those who don’t mind carrying something on the way down.
