Here's a photo of myself at Hospital Beach (also known as Alcan Beach). This ocean side beach (the original site of Kitimat's first hospital) is located just past Rio Tinto Alcan. It is equipped with barbeque pits, picnic tables, and public washrooms. This beach is a popular gathering spot for visitors and locals during the summer months. At low tide, you can explore and find seashells and many small sea creatures. Hospital Beach is a great place to view the large ocean freighters that import Kitimat's industries raw materials and export finished products.

Kitimat, Sightseeing Tours
Located on Haisla Blvd, Coghlin Park is an amazing spot for a photo opportunity that should not be missed! This spot has a scenic lookout, picnic and garden area that looks onto the Douglas Channel. Kitamaat Village to the left, industrial sites to the right and coastal mountains in the background, a breathtaking view! The newest edition to this park includes shrubs and plants from the former Kemano town site.
