Discover Malei Island’s beauty while hiking along our trails. There are trails that lead you to the island’s Ancient Cedar trees. Investigate the abandoned Sea Wolf den located at the base of an old cedar. Through the rainforest and over a handcrafted bridge the Pebble Beach Trail brings you out to a large area that runs along Cascade Harbour known as Pebble Beach. Get a great view of the majestic Pacific Ocean from Otter Point or climb along the numerous driftwood that have washed up on Log Beach. All over Malei Island are trails and wonderfully unique beaches to explore.

Tide Pools

Some of the clearest water in North America is around Malei Island. Seawater from the ocean tides fill rocky hollows along Malei’s shoreline creating Tide Pools. Although these little pools can range in depth from only a few inches to a couple of feet they are brimming with life. Sea Stars, Mussels, Snails, Clams, Sea Urchins and Barnacles are just a few of the sea creatures that can be found living in these tiny bodies of water.

Kayaks and life jackets are available for our guests to use. Paddle along Cascade Harbour between Malei and Nigei Islands or cross over to Nigei to explore its shores. Pack a few essentials before heading out such as sunscreen, lip balm and snacks enclosed in waterproof bags.

Inflatable Boats

Dinghies are on site for our guests to enjoy. Well designed, these sturdy boats can hold three adults comfortably plus some supplies. Enjoy exploring Cascade Harbour and Nigei Island with friends and family. Remember to pack a few essentials before sailing off on your adventure.
