    Much better protected than Little Bay. Still very open and rolly, but northerly swell is less than further north. Anchor on 7 m, black sand, very good holding, very clear water (although it might not seem to be when looking at it from the boat - that‘s because of the black sand not reflecting light). 45 min walk to the lookout platform on Garibaldi Hill from the beach bar. Observatory is a 25 min walk from the northern end of the bay (go with dinghy there). No place to lock the dinghy, need to pull it up the beach.
