Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is located north of Sechelt, BC, off Redrooffs Road in Halfmoon Bay. The park is a popular beach destination for visitors interested in having a full day of outdoor activity such as sightseeing, lounging and exploring trails.
The 142-hectare park was designated as a protected area because of the fragile coastline ecology of the area including the exposed marine life at low tide, the rocky headlands and the forested uplands area. The Sunshine Coast park attracts many outdoor enthusiasts interested in kayaking, board sailing, fishing and scuba diving.
The park's natural landscape attracts much wildlife. A portion of the park is designated as protected wetlands so the area is a prime location for birding enthusiasts to view Harlequin ducks, Canada geese and trumpeter swans. The coastline area is a popular destination for many types of birds such as loons, cormorants, bald eagles, ravens, hawks and owls. Along some of the main trails in this park there is a great opportunity to experience and observe fish swimming upstream at the fish ladder emptying into Colvin Lake and Colvin Creek.
The beach area is for day-use only with amenities provided onsite such as a picnic area, small boat launch (more for row boats, kayaks and canoes) and a pit toilet. No camping is permitted. There are a few parking spaces close to the water and plenty of additional parking a short walk away. Visit the park today and enjoy another gem on the Sunshine Coast.
