Heriot Bay and Around - Quadra Island

Updated: May 29

If you have been paddling and camping for a few days, then I would recommend you reward yourself with a couple of nights at the Heriot Bay Inn (250 285 3322). You have access with your kayak from the water, thought it might be nice if you can find someone to help you carry it up the escarpment from the shingle beach.

The hotel used to be a logging camp, and the receptionist will be happy to tell you all about its history, if you start up a conversation.

The hotel has a restaurant, with very good burgers and fries, including, if you so desire, a veggie burger from Impossible Foods. There's also a bar with a pool table, and karaoke on Saturday nights. They also have a laundry room if you need to wash your clothes.

Just up the road is the BC Ferries Terminal, and the Tru Value Foods Supermarket. If you are heading north, this will be your last resupply point for several days. The food truck next to the supermarket is not very good. I don't recommend it.

If you stay on Heriot Bay Dr. you'll reach the We-Wai-Kai Campsite. You can also paddle here and arrive at the beach. It's an option for a place to stay if the Heriot Bay Inn is full.

Beyond the Campsite is Rebecca Spit Marine Park. It's a pretty walk with pretty views of Quadra Island, but a several hour hike if you are coming from the Inn.
