Kye Bay is a beautiful place, backed by a forested hillside and filled with a bounty of fish, seafood, forest creatures, and plants, the bay is all part of the traditional territory of the Pentlatch People. A Salish-speaking First Nations who inhabited the east coast of Vancouver Island from Kye Bay to the Parksville area, the Pentlatch had permanent and seasonal villages that they used for fishing, hunting, and food gathering in many of the bays including Kye Bay.
Kye Bay has one of the prettiest beaches that you can find on the east side of Vancouver Island. The beach can run out for a great distance when the tide is out, allowing you to explore the many tide pools left behind.
There is a nice little play park with picnic tables and an awesome view of the bay located here, my grandson loves coming here to play when we are in Comox. To get here, follow Ryan Rd till you get to the very end and turn right onto Pritchard. Drive along till you get to the round-about and turn onto Knight Rd. Drive further along, you’ll pass the airport and a few farms. Continue along Knight Rd till you reach the last, and only street, This road will lead you right to the beach.
