July 2020: currently, the swim floats which are normally accessed via the gangway are undergoing repair. We expect them to be returned to Armours Beach by the end of the month.
Located near the Town boundary on Marine Drive, Armours Beach is one of Gibsons’ most popular beaches.
In 2018, Armours Beach underwent a significant facelift, which included terracing at the site to increase accessibility, construction of a new washroom facility, landscaping and the installation of new park furnishings.
In 2019, the work continued, with the six vertical pilings and logs booms to delineate the swimming area replaced in late summer. In October, the foreshore area was fortified and the stone staircase down to the beach completely rebuilt.
Council has budgeted for further improvements at the beach, but the timing on this work is dependent on the financial impact of COVID-19.
