This full colour, beautifully presented series of 5 books, published by Heritage House, guides the reader to lesser known beaches, accessible from official access points which the public is entitled to use. In all 5 of SECRET BEACHES OF VANCOUVER ISLAND AND THE SALISH SEA, Theo Dombrowski provides maps and directions, and information on all the features of the beach location that affect pleasure in being there, including: parking, availability of public facilities, accessibility for those with impaired mobility, type of beach (shelf, gravel, sand), prevailing wind, amount of shade, and advisability for children or large groups. Every beach is represented by a photograph and many also with paintings done by the author. The series celebrates the natural beauty and beach fun that belong to all of us. The books are available in bookstores and on online book sales sites.
