Elizabeth N, Eagle View (#3), Jul 2021 "The rocky beach is amazingly secluded, and beautiful to swim in."
Tribune Bay, Hornby Island
No summary of the swimming beaches would be complete without a mention of Big Tribune Bay ("Big Trib"), the main reason that Hornby has the nickname "Canada's Hawaii". Often deserted out-of-season, it's packed with visitors in the summer. A large, sheltered bay with extensive white sands, framed by rocky outcrops on each side, sparkling blue waters with colourful yachts at anchor, it's easy to see the attraction.
FYI, Little Tribune Bay ("Little Trib"), on the West side of one of those rocky outcrops, is a nudist beach.
