A classic peninsula with water on both sides.. what is stunning is one side the waves are high and the other side, the water is relatively calm...Worth a visit. Please use a bug screen.

I would highly recommend visiting this park. Very nice, clean beaches and facilities. A little disappointed with their interpreters station; a little dated and tired. It hasn't changed since our last visit 5 yrs ago.

Can only drive to a point 3-5km from the tip in summer but there's a shuttle bus every half hour until 8pm to the tip. The view was great and the plants and creatures are almost tropical. Definitely want to revisit and go on the...More

It is worth the drive to this southern tip of Canada. If you like swimming, bring your bath suite and enjoy the water
