Seabreeze Road Green Space

Seabreeze Park, North Saanich

This green space provides access to the rocky shore off of the northern end of the Saanich Peninsula. The trail is a composition of  nineteen stairs over a couple of staircases. The pathway passes under the boughs of large cedar and Douglas-fir trees and is bound closely by private properties. The beach is rough and rocky yet unsurpassed with views of waters of Satellite Channel that is part of the Salish Sea, Saltspring Island, Arbutus Islet and Piers Island. It can be windy, as you might expect. This is a good spot to watch BC Ferries and yachts navigating the channel and even watch some boats under sail. This may be a good site to launch kayaks despite the steep trail access and rocky exposed beach.

Geographic coordinates N48° 41′ 55″ W123° 26′ 58″

You can get to this beach access from Pat Bay Highway. As you near the ferry terminal in Swartz Bay, stay to the right to exit the highway. At the light, turn left and follow the signs to Lands End Road. Travel along Lands End Road to reach Seabreeze Road. Turn right onto Seabreeze Road and look for parking in the small turnabout. There is very limited road side parking. The grass area marked by two large rocks is the trail to the beach.
