Raft Cove is a secluded and very private beach accessible by a rough trail from the Ronning Main logging road. It’s just east of the Cape Palmerston recreation site which is not currently accessible due to a bridge washout. Raft Cove is also a “Provincial Marine Park” and accessible by water from the Pacific Ocean itself via Quatsino Sound.

surfing at Raft Cove is for the serious adventure seeker …
The Macjack River flows out into the cove and limited canoe/kayak access is possible from the Raft Main logging road. Beachcombing is rewarding and winter storm watching is breathtaking from this beach.
