Sidney is located a little north of Victoria on Vancouver Island's Saanich Peninsula. The waterfront looks like it's been filled and pushed out historically, leaving little evidence of the original shoreline (a reminder to do some further sleuthing). Much is now marked by seawalls and a rock revetment, but as often happens in these cases, this an opportunity for this small beach at the end of Beacon Avenue.


The beach is referred to locally as Glass Beach, which like 'glass' beaches elsewhere, reflects on its human history and the presence of ground-up colored glass (usually old bottles) in the sand.
