From the parking lot at Belcarra Regional Park, follow the Jug Island Trail. It is well marked and well walked so it's near impossible to wander off in the wrong direction! The beach near Jug Island is at the very tip of the peninsula and offers beautiful views of the Indian Arm and surrounding mountains. You can swim over to Jug Island to explore, or hang out on the mainland beach beach and take in the sights. This trip is not a loop, so come home the same way you arrived.

Overall rating: 

Easy path to brilliant vista of jug island and the Indian Arm, wish we had taken swimming stuff... the beach is full of barnacles so water shoes might be needed.
