Located to the north of Helliwell Provincial Park, Whaling Station is a popular beach to visit. From the Co-op corner, follow St. Johns Point Rd. to Anderson Dr. Several beach accesses are on the left with limited parking. Private homes ring the beachhead.
The Bay has an expansive safe shallow sandy beach that’s a favourite spot for families during the summer months. At times during the summer, volleyball is played on the beach.
Forage fish habitat exists in areas of the beach. Often tide pools are created, at which eagles are occasionally seen fishing for perch. Shorebirds such as mallards, widgeon, scoters, mergansers and gulls visit during most months of the year. In the Bay’s history there was a time when a whaling station operated.
