 Additional Information

Since it is sheltered this spot can be nice and clean when the surf is big or stormy.
Good winter break.

Two beaches that go forever meet at a sandbar that disappears with tides out to an island. Chesterman south is good to learn, and some bigger waves can be found at the north end.

Atmosphere

It's an amazing spot to bring a cooler and make a day of it... or a few years. ;)

Re: Chesterman Beach? - Just to avoid confusion, the comment I submitted below was in response to the beach labeling I found on Google Earth. My apologies for not being clear in the original post.

Chesterman Beach? - Actually, Chesterman Beach is about 8.5k (5.25 miles) north of this area. I believe this beach is called Schooner. Chesterman is the next beach north of Cox Bay. You will see the sand spit there that separates north and south Chesterman. The best waves will be had at south Chesterman.
