Belcarra Park

It is possible to drive to Belcarra Park, so you will find many people here on summer weekends. A concession stand and public washrooms are located a short walk from the beach where you can pull your kayaks or sup boards up on to and there is a great ice cream stand close to the beach. Be careful if you do leave your kayaks or boards to pull them high enough that an encroaching tide cannot grab them from you!

Boulder and Hamber Islands are close by, and you can either stop her for a while and enjoy the park or keep going to Jug Island to the North or Admiralty Point to the South depending on which way you came.
