The park is located off the northern tip of Denman Island and is accessible by boat from Union Bay on Vancouver Island or by foot from Denman Island at low tide. Visitors walking to Sandy Island need to be aware of the tides so they don’t become stranded at high tides. The park is only accessible by foot at a low tide of 2.4m or less. Boaters can launch at Union Bay, directly west of the island. The closest communities are Denman Island, Union Bay, Courtenay and Comox Valley.
