Rebecca Spit Marine Provincial Park – a narrow hook of land on the east side of Quadra Island – is an excellent area for beach exploration and picnicking. Sandy beaches line both sides of the 2-km spit at this popular day-use park overlooking sheltered Drew Harbour, a favourite anchorage for boaters.
Walking trails lead along both sides of Rebecca Spit and offer ample opportunities for exploring the beach, which contains a high concentration of driftwood. Swimming, fishing and kayaking are all popular activities at Rebecca Spit’s large picnic area.
Facilities include picnic tables overlooking the beach, a grass playing field and wheelchair-accessible pit toilets at the boat launch parking area and at the southern parking lot. Bring your own drinking water as potable water is not available in the park.
The more than 2 km sand spit is a unique natural feature. The eastern shoreline at Rebecca Spit is also known for its high accumulations of driftwood.
Ocean fishing is permitted as per provincial and federal fishing regulations. All anglers should check the current regulations issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Bicycles must keep to roadways and are not permitted on the trail around the spit. This rule is strictly enforced and is a ticketable offence under the Park Act . Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.
Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Rebecca Spit Marine Provincial Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.
