This was a fun day in the sunshine... plenty of exploring: tide pools, beaches, rock formations. So peaceful too... we saw seals, geese, crabs, starfish, gulls and even a snake!

Lovely. Beautiful walk along the ocean, couple of pics close to Stephens point. Maps are not really very good in the park

Dionisio Park was the best spot on our trip. The small bay is swimmable when the low tide is in but still possible for the brave of heart when the colder water rolls in. We saw star fish and sea lions which was quite exciting....More

This is a beautiful location to visit, very few people there while we explored. There are beaches, campsites (marine access) and great walking trails. We will be back!

Although it is described as a marine park, there are trails that lead to the park that can be explored and you can enjoy the natural beauty of this area!

Amazing day at the beach. From ground, it's tough accessing - need to go to end of Vineyard Road - then hoof or bike it about 4km? Paved private road the whole way, so easy/peasy. On the map, it looks like like you can drive...More

This is an amazing park. It's so disappointing that access has been limited to marine access only due to an ongoing dispute (dispute has been ongoing for approx 25 years) What a sad shame that their selfishness is preventing people from visiting Dionisio Point Provincial...More

We cycled around Galiano Island and into Dionisio where we spent the day frolicking in the water and walking around the unique rock formations. Amazing!

IMHO this is a very unique little park. It borders Porlier Pass which has amazing currents and rip tides. I have seen large power boats get pushed back by the rushing waters and pods of Orcas push through those same rushing water as if it...More

(or rent a car at the Galiano Inn like we did, drive north and walk in. Mixed info on trails heading to the point but we made it ok...)

No it is first come first serve. And there are no care takers on site. You just put your camp fee in an envelope and put inside mail box located near manual water pump. Park ranger will come early evening to check.
