Sunshine Coast beach walk
Allan Beach Access near Sechelt, BC
Some of the best beaches on BC’s Sunshine Coast are hidden away and easily missed if you’re not looking for the “beach access” signs along the highway or if you don’t have a handy-dandy map like we do.

Beach Access 32 - Allan
Footage Beach Access 32 near Sechelt has it all - a fun little path that leads to the water, shallow rocky beaches (bring sandals or other footwear that can get wet), and some FAT GEESE.
Parking spaces along the road are a little thin but we managed to find a wide spot where we were safely off to the side. The walk to the water is maybe a couple hundred meters and is next to flat with the only elevation coming at the very end where you walk down a short flight of stairs to arrive at the beach.
We visited at high tide so there wasn't a ton of beach but what was there was easily walkable. Even though you can see Sechelt from the beach and there are a number of cabins that line the waterfront, Beach Access 32 feels very secluded - we only saw two other people during our time there, both of them in a two-person kayak.
Close proximity to Sechelt and an easy walk to the beach make Beach Access 32 easily accessible and perfect for a mid-day getaway when you have less than an hour of free time.
