Tribune Bay, with Tribune Bay Park in the foreground
Located on Hornby Island, the 95-hectare Tribune Bay Provincial Park is known for its beautiful white sandy beach and unusual rocky shoreline formations.

Tribune Bay boasts eroded hoodoo formations and more than 1,000 metres of sandy beach that vies with any in the Gulf Islands as the most ideal place to frolic and swim. Tribune Bay is considered to be one of the warmest saltwater swimming areas in British Columbia.

Sunbathers and swimmers are attracted to the sun-warmed aquamarine waters and the beach that stretches endlessly out to sea at low tide. The shallow waters reach near tropical temperatures in summer.


Forest adjacent to Tribune Bay
Hiking, fishing, leisurely walks and picnicking are other popular pastimes in Tribune Bay Park. If you arrive here in spring, you'll be treated to a dazzling display of wildflowers in the area. The rewards for visiting later in summer are the huckleberries and the dark blue salal berries that cloak the island, including the hillside above the beach in nearby Helliwell Provincial Park.

Facilities include picnic tables, pit toilets and wheelchair access. There are no vehicle accessible camping facilities at this park, but a number of nearby commercial campgrounds can accommodate travellers.

The nearby Co-op Store, a five-minute walk from Tribune Bay, is the commercial hub of Hornby Island. Two miles southeast of the park are the impressive headland cliffs of Helliwell Provincial Park.
