Eventide Road Beach, North Saanich

Eventide Road BeachEventide Road Beach has a rough twenty meter access trail to its sand and cobble beach. It is located the Ardmore neighborhood of North Saanich between Briarwood Place Beach and Bayview Road Beach. Shaded by big leaf maple trees and bordered by a long cedar hedge, the twenty meter trail crosses over the grass covered area to a viewpoint. There are views across to Saanich Inlet to the Mill Bay area of Vancouver Island. This is another wonderful spot to watch sunsets over the water. The trail that leads to sandy and shale stone beach is steep.

You can get to Eventide Road Beach from Pat Bay Highway.  Leave the highway at Exit 26, the McTavish Interchange, an unique and confusing series of roundabouts that make a multi-circle roadway overpass. Take the third exit onto McTavish Road then take the second exit to stay on McTavish Road. Follow McTavish Road past the East Saanich Intersection and continue until you reach West Saanich Road (BC 17A N) turn right onto West Saanich Road. Follow along this road until you reach Frizell Road. This intersection will be to the left as West Saanich Road curves to the right. Frizell Road is short and curves to become Glenelg Avenue. Turn right onto Glynnwood Park Road as the road curves left. Eventide Road Beach can be accessed from the intersection of Glynnwood Park Road and Glenelg Avenue. There is roadside parking.
