Parksville, British Columbia

The coastline of Vancouver Island offers so much stunning beauty, it’s easy to take it for granted. Which is why you may not have heard of Parksville, one of the Island’s fastest growing cities, offering more of the same beautiful ocean.

North of Victoria, and a short drive from Nanaimo, Parksville is a great jumping off point for outdoor adventures like kayaking, or the popular Horne Lake Caves. The city also features some classic chillout hotels and resorts, like Tigh-Na-Mara, (recommended for couples and those who like to ‘dip and dine‘).

Be a local. Wherever you go.
