Gonzales Beach

Gonzales Bay Beach (also known as foul bay) is named for Spanish explorer Gonzalo Lopez de Haro, first mate of the Spanish ship Princesa Real. Gonzalo was instrumental in charting the waters around Vancouver Island in the 1790s.

Until the late 60s, Gonzales Bay Beach remained a popular recreation area, but the small beach cabins were being replaced with larger houses and the bay’s access began to be more limited. The property owners were becoming upset with the noisy parties that were popular with younger people. Today, you can still swim and picnic here. It’s a very pretty part of the city and very peaceful. Take a walk here and see it for yourself, don’t forget to bring your camera. more info : https://gohiking.ca/coastal-shores/beaches/gonzales-bay-beach/
