Lovely beach to walk and swim. Areas to walk in tide pools and look at shells and sand dollars. Water was clear and no slime. Good to know when the tides in or out as will affect the amount of beach 🏖

Probably one of the best beaches in BC. Good swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. Lots of sand and fun to be had.

We hit it perfect - weather, tides, everything. Water not as warm as Parksville but still outstanding. Perfect skim. Not too many shells except for sand dollars (which are NOT souvenirs, people! Living things). Loved like mad.

Great long stretch of sandy beaches for kids of all ages. No shaded areas so best to bring your own shades as the afternoon gets hot. If you have to come back to the Comox area check ferry schedule as last run is at 6pm...More

As above. It's nicer when the tide is in a bit because the water will be warmer, but you can swim anytime!
