Back on the east side of the Inlet and about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the Tuwanek Spit you come to Tuwanek Point. The point is actually a small island with a sheltered channel running between the shoreline and the island. The channel is a great place to take a breather – the water is crystal clear and shallow enough to take in the incredible sea life below while you drift in your kayak or canoe. Because of the varieties of fish and aquatic plant life the point is a popular diving spot.
A quarter mile further north brings you to the Tuwanek Beach Marine Park that has 4 or 5 sites for tents, a fire pit and an outhouse. There is a creek but we have always taken our own water for drinking. The beach is a great spot to watch the sunset. Once again, overnight boat anchorage is a little chancy because of the lack of shelter from the winds.
