The town of Comox (population 12,200) sits on the east coast of south-central Vancouver Island.
It revels in a seaside location, a mountainous horizon and the rich farmlands of the nearby Comox Valley. Its varied landscape woos the visitor with beaches and swimming, fishing, ocean kayaking, hiking, biking, diving, golfing, and a driving tour. Yet for all the activity, it gives the impression of a laidback town in a pastoral setting.
Comox Area Highlights
Nearby Strathcona Provincial Park has a monopoly on superlatives: It’s the oldest and largest provincial park on Vancouver Island. Its flat-topped Comox Glacier ranks as largest glacier on Vancouver Island. And Della Falls, eight times higher than Niagara, is both the highest falls in Canada and one of the 10 highest in the world.
