In the Swartz Head neighborhood of North Saanich is the short Beach Road. It ends in pebble trail and small gravel turnabout beside a large rock face with modern glyphs. The gravel trail along the seaside properties of Swartz Head leads to the pebble beach. There is a eleven step concrete staircase to this unique sandy pebble beach of Tsehum Harbour. This is a wonderful place to watch the waves and yachts while you relax against the logs on the shoreline. This promontory, called Kingfisher Point, is worth the effort to visit as on the nearby waters, rocks and reefs you can see Canadian geese, buffleheads, harlequin ducks as well as crows and gulls. Occasionally river otters can be seen swimming or amongst logs and rocks. A peaceful spot.
