Sit on the rocks and watch the ferries go by, sunrise or sunset beautiful. Cool erosion on the rocks where the waves have smoothed them out and pebbles have ground holes in the stone.

Great spot to watch the ferries go by and an amazing vulture nest and bald eagles about! Flat rock to spread out and enjoy a picnic.

The Bellhouse was beautiful at every hour of the day. The tide pools are great but slippery so be careful out there! The active pass is lovely and we saw wages and seals on our visit.

It was a great find and worth the walk. The rock formations is incredible. Could sit there for hours and just drink in nature.

This is a perfect little park for a stroll, some great views for photographers, proximity to Sturdies Bay and even a picnic. There were a few fishermen there as well so there is a little bit to do for everyone!
