Central Vancouver Island is a relaxed haven of sandy beaches with warm water, mountain-ringed valleys, agricultural fields, and relaxed coastal communities like Parksville and Courtenay/Comox.

Harbour city Nanaimo is the mainland ferry hub, while Campbell River boasts some of the planet’s best salmon fishing. Sport fishing, skiing, paddling, whale watching, golfing, and farmers markets are key attractions along this part of British Columbia’s coastline.
