For those new to Parksville, we wanted to help you get acquainted with this Vancouver Island gem…
If you aren’t familiar with it’s location – Parksville is a quick 30 minute drive from Nanaimo, BC on central Vancouver Island. Nanaimo is a main hub for the island with regular flights by major airlines and BC ferry service to Vancouver and the lower mainland.
Parksville is one of Vancouver Island’s top tourist destinations with its 2km long golden sandy beach as the primary attraction. Better Homes & Gardens called Parksville “Canada’s best family friendly beach destination” and the Globe & Mail named it “Canada’s Riviera”.
The town of Parksville itself is quaint and chalk full of coffee shops, brunch spots and restaurants to choose from. New to the culinary scene is a wave of organic, locally grown and inspired eateries that won’t disappoint the foodies.
If craft beer is your scene, Parksville has it’s own local brewery that just won BC’s 2017 Brewery of the Year and convenient to “the Residences” (just down the street) is a brittish-style pub with large backyard patio overlooking the ocean.
On Tuesdays in Summer, Parksville’s Craig street is a buzz with its wildly popular street market. Going on 15 years strong the market now has over 180 vendors selling an enjoyable mix of handmade goods from local artisans, farmers and crafters.
In immediate proximity you can explore several parks, discover scenic waterfalls and spend an afternoon shopping at the famous “Goats on the Roof” market in Coombs.
Probably second to the beach, people come to Parksville to golf. Vancouver Island boasts year-round golfing and close-by there are 6 golf courses to choose from.
And while the town of Parksville doesn’t typically have much for snow in winter, you can find skiing just 40 minutes away at Mt. Washington Alpine Resort.
Make no mistake – Parksville offers something for everyone year-round!
