This is one of Pender Island’s prettiest “secret” beaches. Parks Canada recently turned it into a campsite, but as it is accessible only by hiking, kayaking, or canoeing in, it remains sparsely used.
At very low tide you can walk over the exposed shingle to the islet; however, posted signs warn that the islet is closed to exploration to help protect its fragile ecosystem.
I’ll be “off the grid” for the next few days, so I’m making this post a day ahead of schedule. I’ll also schedule a post for Wednesday, but I won’t be able to respond to comments until the end of the week.
