Sandy Island Marine Park Coordinates: 49°37.093N x 124°51.055W Sandy Island as its name suggests is a small sandy island just north of Denman Island. It lies offshore from Comox, BC and south of Cape Lazo. The beach is composed of sand at all tide levels and is convenient for launching and landing kayaks. A large grassy area is available for camping out of the sand. Beautiful views of the Strait of Georgia and Vancouver Island can be seen from the campsite. The pit toilet provided by BC Parks was in disrepair and unusable on my visit here in May 2012. I could find no water source on the island. Hiking trails wind through the trees and around the island.
