Tribune Bay Provincial Park is a provincial park located on Hornby Island in British Columbia, Canada. It features a broad, crescent-shaped beach of white sand, Tribune Bay (a shallow, warm-water bay), and spring wildflowers. There are opportunities for canoeing, fishing, hiking, tennis, picnicking and open water swimming. Six pit toilets are provided.
The bay (and hence the park) was named after HMS Tribune, a ship stationed in British Columbia in 1859–1860 and 1864.
