The Cape itself is attached to Vancouver Island by a sand bridge called Sandy Neck and hikers can climb a wooden plank road to the lighthouse for a spectacular view. The park is a paradise for kayakers with miles of beautiful white sandy beaches offering spectacular scenery. Several varieties of birds are found in the park including blue herons, spotted sandpiper, sandhill cranes, and trumpeter swans. Hansen Lagoon is also a resting area for migrating waterfowl“ one of the best on the northwest coast. There is a fairly large population of deer and some elk in the area.
