  • A nice relaxing walk down to the beach at departure bay
  • One of my favourite spots in Nanaimo. If you pick the right time, you would be able to see a ferry arriving to Departure Bay!
  • Hidden jem of a city park for a quick hike. Feels like youre in middle of deep pacific northwestern forest. Ends at a nice small beach near the BC ferries terminal at Departure Bay.
  • Nice easy walk that is still very beautiful and peaceful!
  • This park is hidden but easily to get to.The first part is a set of steps that Parks Nanaimo is doing a good job maintaining.A nice water falls less than two minutes from entering the park.A great place for some pics.A series of walk ways with a grated metal plates leads to the water front.

Where to stay in Nanaimo

Stay at one of the guesthouses and inns lining Front Street if you want to be in the heart of the city, while also enjoying the waterfront at your doorstep. For a more natural ambiance, head north of the center along the coastal highway, where you can choose from a selection of inns and resorts boasting views over Newcastle Island. If you have a car and prefer an easy route out of town, stay at one of the motels lining Island Highway to the northwest of the center.
