“One of B.C.’s most beautiful 9 hole public golf courses. This Gulf Island Jewel offers four elevated tee boxes and affords expansive views of the challenging golf shots that lie ahead.”

“Part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, and also where you can find some original cabins and the Pender Island Museum. This is a great place for a picnic and throwing a frisbee around. At low tide you can walk across the beach to an islet with some beautiful coves, arbutus trees, and a secret cliff-jumping spot!”

“Beautiful location by the ocean with a lovely walk through Roseland. Sit on the bench down by the water for a quiet restful stop and enjoy watching the ferry pass, with eagles, otter and other wildlife close by. Roesland is a National park in Pender Island. It is at 2895 S Otter Bay Rd. and it is also the location of Pender's Museum. Roesland is a beautiful park that takes you down to the water's edge. You can take a walk out onto the spit and enjoy the scene on the park benches.”
