The main beach area and restaurants in Crescent Beach are a popular and well known destination. However, not far from the main street is picturesque Blackie Spit park, jutting out into Boundary Bay. A great way to explore the area is on bikes, with wide, packed gravel trails and quiet side streets. Locals’ tip – be sure to stop at the Historic Stewart Farm… with regular hours and frequent special events, it’s a worthwhile year round.
