Long Description:
The Gulf Islands National Park Reserve is not a contiguous national park but a multi-unit park scattered across several Gulf Islands on Canada's West Coast.

The Bennett Bay Unit is a small area with some short walking trails that access beaches and viewing beautiful sandstone sculptures carved over the millennia by waves.

From a sandy beach that is revealed at low tide where people can just relax to tidal pools filled with intertidal species, this small unit is a great place to explore the wonders if the Gulf Islands.
