Quaranup / Point Possession Trail - the istmus that connects Point Possession with the Vancouver Peninsula was formed by wave action depositing sand between the island and headland. Additional sand was brought in at a later time to create an articifial peninsula that protects Princess Royal Harbour from storms.
Emu Point (last two photos) is an ideal family beach located approximately 10 km from the city centre. The grassed picnic area is shaded by trees and there is a nice Japanese restaurant just next to the beach. This is a popular spot for swimming with shallow water and enclosed swimming and diving areas.
