Salmon Beach is a recreational cottage community situated on the shores of beautiful Barkley Sound -- home to countless recreational activities for the whole family to enjoy.
At Salmon Beach you will wake up to the sounds of the surf, with spectacular views of the mountains, the Broken Group Islands, and ocean beyond. Known for its abundance of wildlife, you'll experience nature at its wildest and finest, with whales, sea lions, and the many bald eagles that nest along the shoreline. From Salmon Beach you'll be able to pick your own oysters and clams, or even trap Dungeoness crab or prawns. The private boat ramp allows you to go out and experience some of the world's best salmon, halibut and cod fishing, or superb kayaking and SUPing in the sheltered coves of the Broken Island Group.
Salmon Beach has evolved into one of the most unique and prized recreational cottage communities on Vancouver Island. Zoning now allows for cottage construction -- depending on your lot size, you can build a cottage up to 768 sq ft footprint, 1 & 1/2 stories. Smaller lots (60x120ft) have a maximum foot print of 560 sq ft. All lots can have a 160 sq ft shed.
With BC Hydro now available at Salmon Beach, you will enjoy a richer experience while here. Some properties have pulled power in, it's at the lot line of others.
Owners catch rainwater and store it in 1,500 gallon holding tanks.
Sewer/Septic is a 1,500 gallon holding tank, when the light goes on that you're nearing full, you call the Village pump truck, a cost of approx $150/pumpout and they release it into the Village sani-field.
Internet is by way of Satellite Internet, available from Tofino Tech, or tether to your cell phone.
Phone is cell phone service only, you won't have service from Port Alberni all the way up Toquart bay road, but soon after turning towards Salmon Beach, you'll be back on the cell grid.
