While completely unsuitable for overnight anchorage due to its extreme exposure to both weather and swells from the nearby crowded shipping lane, this spot absolutely oozes beauty in the early spring and summer. The slopes to the north are deep green pastures, more typical of BC's interior. While the entire beach is public, the land on the North end of the beach is private and should be respected.
Public access is up an incredibly steep and slippery trail to an abandoned homestead atop the bluff. The ruins are very atypical for the region, being made of stone. A long and unmaintained trail stretches for several kilometres along the bluffs of the South side of Saturna Island; however, as holding is not excellent, exercise caution in leaving your boat's visible range.
Please respect private property. All beaches are public, but the upland area to the North is private.
The trail along the headlands is scenic and unique to the area, a drastic change from other island geology.
