Bay Park : Sunshine Coast
Sunshine Coast parks and trails
Davis Bay is a small community located just south of Sechelt BC on the lower section of the Sunshine Coast. The identifying feature of Davis Bay is the long pebbled beach coastline with a well developed paved walking path lined with viewing benches while highlighted with a long wooden fishing pier jutting out from the shoreline. Often the pier is occupied by fisherman and swimmers.
The Davis Bay coastline cannot be missed if you travel along the main route, the Sunshine Coast Hwy. Entering Davis Bay follows down a hill from, both north and south, and then suddenly the trees part way and the oceans and shores of Davis Bay jumps out at you. It is impossible to miss!
At Davis Bay when the tide rolls out tidal pools and sand bars appear. A good opportunity for observing some of the smaller marine life or to build a sandcastle. Otherwise on high tides the beach is mainly rocky covered with driftwood and sea shells. The Davis Bay coastline is a very popular Sunshine Coast destination to windsurf, beach comb, stroll the Seawalk or try your hand at fishing from the pier.
On a clear day, the views of Georgia Strait and Vancouver Island are visible enough that the individual communities on the island stand out. Chapman Creek is a hiking and biking trail located in Davis Bay. It is an moderate grade trail that follows the creek leading to a small waterfall and hatchery.
