WHEN YOU’RE INVITED to stay for two nights at a beachfront spa resort, you don’t decline. At least that’s my rule. I’d heard the name, Tigh-Na-Mara, spoken many times and even had driven by it more than once in the time I’ve spent on Vancouver Island’s east coast. It had always intrigued me.
Using it as a base to explore Parksville Qualicum Beach, and to indulge in Tigh-Na-Mara’s mineral pool and tasty cuisine, my partner and I took in some known, and some lesser known, things to do while we were there.
