St. Davids is a beautiful 13.4 acre island at the southwestern end of Shawanaga Inlet in Pointe au Baril that is stewarded by the GBLT on behalf of American Friends of Canadian Land Trusts. Due to its generous size and the presence of both rock barren and coastal meadow marsh vegetation communities, St. Davids likely provides habitat for rare reptile species known from the area.
St. Davids is located such that it is part of the barrier sheltering southern Shawanaga from open Georgian Bay, and as a result has classic and rugged windswept terrain on its windward side, becoming more heavily treed on the eastern portion.
