Fish Boat Bay Community Park

Shirley offers great fishing spot at community park

For a gorgeous sandy beach with a view check out the community park at Fishboat Bay in Shirley.

Bring the kids, sand pails, picnic and binoculars. The Juan de Fuca Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission has just completed a set of stairs to the beach to replace the rope that used to be there. It is best to visit the park at low tide as the beach can disappear. To get there, go past French Beach and Juan de Fuca Road then turn left onto Fishboat Bay Road. A very short park trail is well marked at the end of the road.

While there, if you feel like a longer hike, go to the Priest Cabin Community Park for a splendid overlook of French Beach. Park at the end of Juan de Fuca Roadand then hike up the small road on the right up the hill, dog-leg left and turn rightto the forested summit before the yellow gate. Follow the trail to the cabin and beyond to the see the view.
