Sandspit in British Columbia / Canada
Sandspit is a small hamlet situated on the northeast tip of Moresby Island, 14 km (9 mi) east of Alliford Bay.
Sandspit has a lengthy history which dates back to at least one ancient Haida village, Kil. The flat grassy land in the area was ideal for the farms and ranches established by Sandspit's first pioneer settlers. Sandspit's first major industry in 1910 was a dogfish oilery, followed by a fish cannery in 1913. Today, the primary industries are transportation, logging and tourism.
Sandspit is the starting point for those wanting to visit the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site and Marine Protected Area Reserve. Departure is by air or water, since there are no roads to Gwaii Haanas.
Plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities are available in Sandspit and the surrounding area. There are several hiking trails nearby. Sandspit is a hotbed for fishing especially during the late Coho runs in September and October, and also offers wonderful camping opportunities. Birding and kayaking are also popular
activities in the area.
