Gibsons Beach, Powell River BC

On Highway 101 just north of the Wildwood section of Powell River you'll find an access road heading down to Gibsons Beach. Gibsons is a day use beach that is often uncrowded. It offers trees for shade, picnic tables, a grassy bluff, and a mix of rock and sand at the shore. There's plenty of parking near the picnic area.

Or you can drive around to the south side to find a rustic boat ramp and more parking.

In addition to beach activities, Gibsons is a great place to launch a kayak to explore Sliammon's Scuttle Bay or across the strait to Harwood Island. You can read more about our kayak excursion in Wayne's Coastal BC Stories book Up the Main. Right now you can get it FREE if you are a Kindle or e-book reader. -- Margy

  3. It looks fabulous! You make me want to get in the car and go!

  4. EG and Sandy - It is a perfect place. I love anywhere there aren't crowds on a nice day. It's even nice on a windy cool day for walking and wave watching.

    Paul - You know all the good spots.
