Tonquin is a charming municipal park and small, secluded wave-washed beach.
There is a parking lot at the end of Tonquin Park Road, and from there a boardwalk winds through old-growth forest about 5 minutes before descending 75 steps to the beach.
Tonquin offers white sand, sheltered coves and stunning sunsets. With its westerly exposure, Tonquin has the advantage of full sun throughout the day. Continuing along the trail at the top of the stairs will lead to the Lighthouse Trail, which weaves through the forest along the scenic coastline.
