Qualicum Beach is heaven for those eager for fresh air and exercise in glorious natural settings.
The area as a whole (both Parksville and Qualicum Beach) encompasses eight provincial and six regional parks, each with their own network of trails, natural attractions and scenic outlooks. All varieties of experience from gentle strolls to strenuous near-vertical climbs are served within a remarkably diverse UNESCO Biosphere Reserve that embraces five climatic zones between beach and mountain peak.
