Tribune Bay Provincial Park boasts one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the Gulf Islands. The swimming is both warm and safe because of gentle slope of the beach. In the summer, the aquamarine water can reach almost tropical temperatures. Sailboats and pleasure craft often stop over here on their way along the coast. The park contains 95 hectares of meadows, woodlands with trails, a public tennis court, picnic shelter and tables, and public toilets. Tribune Bay is famous for its interesting sandstone formations.
No camping or dogs are allowed on the beach, but the park is located a short walk from a private campground and the Hornby Co-op store. Campfires are permitted in the fire rings provided on the beach, unless there is a fire closure. Access to the main parking lot is from St. John’s Point Road just past the Hornby Co-op intersection. A second access is further along St. John’s Point Road at the entrance to the Outdoor Education Centre.
