West Beach is a scenic beach set in a small bay, with opportunities to explore water-washed rock formations and enjoy fishing or whale watching.
A formed path provides easy access to this delightful beach where the rocks have been sculpted by nature into intriguing shapes. The wave-washed surfaces of these weathered schists show delightful detail in alternating bands of light and dark minerals that include glistening mica and small deep pink garnets.
A lookout with seating on the path is a good vantage point to enjoy the views and spot whales and their newborn young during winter when they may shelter close to shore.
Please keep in mind that in certain conditions waves may wash over the reefs and there could be strong currents present, making the pools potentially unsafe.
