The Gulf Islands off the coast of Vancouver Island are filled with hidden treasures. Before the summer’s up, take a weekend getaway to the nearby Galiano Island to check out these incredible sandstone caves.
Galiano Island, one of the smaller islands along the coast, is filled with beautiful beaches for swimming and an incredible coast line of classic Pacific Northwest forest and cliffs. The island’s stunning northwest coast, along Retreat Cove, is where you can discover the most iconic vistas Galiano has to offer.
The magnificent sandstone caves in Retreat Cove look like out of a movie. Brilliant blue ocean waves through the warm golden cliffs are something really unique to admire. The dramatic outlook here is one of the most fantastic sights you can witness in the Gulf Islands.
Enjoy the sunset and the irresistible tranquility the islands have to offer as you slow down to appreciate the hidden gem. The incredible patterns of the cliffs and unusual rock formations that line this coastline will have you wanting to explore for hours on end.
Feel free to take your time, but always remember to respect the local’s environment and leave no trace during your visit. We want everyone to be able to experience the untouched beauty of our coast.
