Shingle Bay, Moresby Island

On the north side of Moresby Island, in-between Onward Point and Sandspit Village is a long stretch of sandy beach to explore. The easy access beach is very visible on the drive in from the Alliford Bay BC Ferry Terminal as it follows the main road into Sandspit Village and the airport.

Shingle Bay - Haida Gwaii, BC Photo GalleryThe beach area is made up of mostly fine sand and small pebbles with driftwood logs and shells populating the shoreline. The whole coastline of Shingle Bay is a popular destination in the summer months for the locals and visitors. Many arrive to hang out and kick back, enjoying a day of beachcombing, ocean swimming and relaxing.

Along the shoreline of Shingle Bay is some private picnic tables (belonging to the shoreline residential homes we think), a rope swing, some left behind beach toys, a large wharf and some elevated grassy areas. From the sandy beach one can watch the sea birds play and the marine traffic sail on by.

The beach goes for miles. One can almost walk west to east along Shingle Bay beach on Moresby Island from the small craft marina to the long wooden wharf at the foot of the airport.
