Much of Albany coastline consists of soaring and smooth granite cliffs which plunge straight into the sea.

Occasionally there are jagged and eroded limestone strata.

Note the rounded granite boulders on the bottom left of the cliff, with the limestone overlaying.

The view in the other direction is towards Seal Island and the Vancouver Peninsula.

Approaching Limestone Head

The limestone erodes into interesting features such as small caves and this undercut cliff.


At the base of Isthmus Hill


A climb to the top of Isthmus Hill gives a rewarding view towards Bald Head, with a long wave cut platform and big surf at the base of the limestone - not for landing!

The other direction from Isthmus Hill: view towards Salmon Holes

Variety of shipping in the harbour: the Europa, cruise liner and the Jin Niu Ling (wheat carrier?) with tug Elgin
