One of the hottest summer destinations on Vancouver Island’s West Coast, easily accessible from Vancouver and Victoria; Parksville’s unspoiled beaches caressed by gentle Pacific waves appeals to a wide range of holiday makers serviced by classic Vancouver Island hospitality.
Golf, hiking, and mountain biking enthusiasts are well served in a rare, splendidly protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This area is notable for its pristine watersheds, deep lakes, extensive parkland, forested tracts (notably the old-growth treasure at Cathedral Grove) and challenging trails leading to incredible viewpoints.
Accommodations in the area range from resorts (namely Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort & Conference Centre, with Western Canda’s #1 Spa – the Grotto Spa) , hotels, cabins & cottages to campgrounds.
