Rocky shores full of crabs, oysters and clams surround this unspoiled island, separated from Vancouver Island
by the narrow Baynes Sound. The community has a restaurant, guest houses, a grocery store and gas station. Pottery, weaving and other handicrafts are made here by local artists. Beachcombing and wilderness beach camping are available at Sandy Island Marine Provincial Park
off the northwest coast. It can be reached on foot during low tides, or by boat at other times. Fillongley Provincial Park
(near the ferry dock) has 10 campsites and a beach plentiful with oysters. Chrome Island lighthouse can be seen from Boyle Point.
