About the Park

Tribune Bay located on Hornby Island is nicknamed “Little Hawaii” and features white sandy beaches that stretch endlessly out to meet an aquamarine sea. Boasting close to 1 km of fine white sand beach, the south-facing Tribune Bay is easily one of the most spectacular on the east side of Vancouver Island. Here, shallow waters meet near tropical temperatures during the summer and the bay is considered to be one of the warmest salt water swimming areas in BC. This day-use area does not offer overnight camping.
