Transfer Beach

beautifull view of beach


Ladysmith offers the right mix of rocky shoreline and sandy beach. Hailed as the jewel of Ladysmith, Transfer Beach is the best starting point for exploring the long shoreline of the town.

Transfer Beach was once the industrial centre of Ladysmith. From 1899, millions of tons of coal were shipped from Transfer Beach’s massive wharves to locations around the world. The Transfer Wharf moved rail cars fully loaded with coal or goods onto barges, making Ladysmith the major interchange for rail traffic between the mainland and Vancouver Island.

After the decline of the coal and logging industries, the waterfront was preserved as a park in 1967.
