  Community Picnic At Black Sands Beach
by mcpangie

One day a barge brought anyone who wanted who didn't have their own boat around the corner of Gravina Island to Black Sands Beach for a community gathering and picnic.

There aren't tours in Ketchikan to this wonderful beach, but a very determined person could charter a boat here.

The island in the background across the way is Annette Island where Metlakatla is located. Annette Island is the only Indian Reservation in the State of Alaska.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
