  Campania........
  Posted by: chodups on Jun-21-12 8:49 PM (EST)
 

Campania Island is a stunning place and not easy to get to. Determined paddling from ferry access at Klemtu or Kitkatla is three days away plus dealing with winds and currents can change itineraries. Needless to say, if Denis is sharing this fantastic beach with anyone it is someone he can relate to.

The beaches of Campania are described by some as the best on the BC coast and they are spectacular. Mount Pender soars 2300+ feet directly above them. This particular beach is really nice and there is a source of freshwater nearby. Depending on the season and the year Deerflies can be a problem there but being there is worth most anything. Nice place for a day off.

Campania photos by Jonathon Walpole on his solo trip from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy in 2006. Spend some time looking at his other albums too. Nice stuff. He does a great job of capturing the BC coastal experience.
