Elliott's Beach Park - Ladysmith, BC
Elliott's Beach Park is a small pebbled beach and activity destination located in the Cowichan Valley, , northeast of Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada on Vancouver Island. The beach park is situated in a small quiet bay, surrounded by rock outcroppings, in an area of Ladysmith referred to as Yellow Point.
From the parking lot a short pebbled path leads down to the waterfront. On one side of the waterfront park is a small stretch of rocky shoreline. At low tide visitors can walk the flat rocks exploring many small tidal pools.
On the other side of the park is a pebbled beach and an underwater rock wall. The high water line on the beach marks the beginning of the driftwood logs. Amongst the pebbles are small crushed shells and dried seaweed strands.
At the far end of the pebbled beach, on the point, is an underwater rock wall popular for scuba diving. There are various types of crabs, star fish, sea anenomes and sea cucumbers hidden around the rock wall.
The middle of the park fronts the beach. Behind the beach is a raised pebbled bank with a couple of picnic tables. Great spot for a picnicking. The beach is also a popular destination for kayakers. Some kayak groups launch from the beach others arrive at the beach as part of a tour.
There is no boat launch here. Kayaks must be portaged down to the ocean from the parking lot. The pebbled parking lot is a fair size, but not large. Nearby there are pit toilets.
