A hike from facilities at the Iona Beach Regional Park parking lot to end of the causeway and back. The causeway juts out into the Straight of Georgia, passing under the main VYR arrival or depature flyway, as well as regular helicopter and float plane routes. Take binoculars. The attached 70-200 telephoto pictures give an idea of what you will see.
There is a large tidal range here, with lots of sea bird activity, also great views to north shore mountains, Mount Baker, and across the Straight of Georgia to the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island mountains. Kildeer, Eagle, Heron, Cormorant, Tern, Seagull, Geese, shorebirds.
