Holmes Point Beach, Vancouver Island
Holmes Point Beach, is located on the southern terminal of Cape Lazo, it is a beautiful beach. There is one of the most impressive boat launches that l have ever seen there. The views from this beach are incredible and the winter storms that lash the beach are something to see.
A rare Garry Oak ecosystem of twisted and gnarly oak trees can be found along the shoreline, where the powerful wind and wave systems of winter have shaped the landscape.
Further inland, a series of sand dunes covered with pine, fir, and salal is one of only two areas of this type known to exist in BC. These are quite unexpected but awesome to see.
So come on out and take a walk along this beach, you never know what you might see here, in winter you want to dress warm, bring a thermos of coffee and enjoy the view, don’t forget to bring your camera.
