Drumbeg Provincial Park (Hiking)

 

One of three provincial parks on Gabriola Island, Drumbeg is a favourite spot for diving, hiking, nature viewing and picnicking. Overlooking scenic Gabriola Passage on the east end of the Island, Drumbeg offers excellent views of the Strait of Georgia and the Coast Mountains on the Mainland. The park contains a kilometer long sand and pebble beach with striking sandstone and conglomerate rock formations, which can be seen at low tide.

Drumbeg Park protects endangered Garry oak ecosystems, undeveloped Douglas fir forest landscapes and a diverse marine zone. Species such as Bald eagles, Great Blue herons, harbour seals and American oystercatchers can be spotted here, along with a number of intertidal creatures. Underwater enthusiasts can dive from the shores of the park, or head out to Rogers reef by boat and still stay out of the strong currents that run through Gabriola Passage.

Facilities at this day-use only park include a grassy field, pit toilets, picnic tables, hiking trails and an information shelter.
