Harbourfront Walkway, Nanaimo

(4.6/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Stroll along Harbourfront Walkway, a waterfront trail that captures the essence of the city. As you walk, watch for local fisherman on the piers casting a line or others trying their luck with crabs. Visit the market to pick up some fresh produce among local buskers and street vendors. Stop by a café on the pier and indulge in some tasty seafood as seaplanes continuously arrive and depart. The walkway features a good mix of locals and tourists, offering a peaceful ambience with an ocean breeze.
