Secret Beaches of Southern Vancouver Island PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Secret Beaches of Southern Vancouver Island free pdf This is your guide to dozens of spectacular and often hidden beaches on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island between Qualicum and the Malahat. While some of them are well used by people living nearby, many are virtually impossible to find without combing through official maps and back-road guides. From tiny rocky coves to broad sandy beaches, these public-access spots are enormously diverse. Just as important as finding these spots is knowing what to expect. Thus each location is accompanied by detailed information that any beach explorer should know before setting out. Is the beach a few level steps from a vehicle or down a high, steep bank? Is the beach suitable for children? Large groups? Kayakers? All of these questions and many more are answered in this book, which includes: Theo's hand-drawn maps, photographs and artwork- Watch sea lions in the winter (Higginson Road) Paint one of the few great views of Mount Arrowsmith - go before noon for dramatic light (Rowland Road)- Head to the most child-friendly beach between Crofton and the Malahat (Cherry Point Nature Park)- Splash and swim in warm water over sand (Benwalden Road). Refresh your pleasure in the shore and head out to picnic, play, launch kayaks, watch winter storms or just enjoy the waves.
