Jewel of Vancouver Island
With access to both the sea and mountains, vacations in Parksville appeal to hikers, swimmers, bird-watchers, and amateur photographers. Rightly called the "Jewel of Vancouver Island," this little town offers golden sands caressed by the gentle waves of the Pacific Ocean. You can spend your entire Parksville holiday stretched out on one of the area's pleasant beaches, yet a short drive from town savvy visitors discover golf courses, mountain biking paths, deep lakes, extensive old-growth forests, and UNESCO-protected biosphere reserves. With its reliable tourist services, Parksville is also an ideal place to take a break while touring the rest of Vancouver Island. Make the most of your holiday in Parksville by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Canada trip planning tool.

Where to stay in Parksville

Most accommodations in the town center look over the Strait of Georgia. Here, along Island Highway, you'll find primarily chain hotels, resorts, and motels offering clean and comfortable lodgings within walking distance of the town's amenities. If you want to enjoy the region's pristine nature, you can find more interesting accommodations just east down the highway, around the border of Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. Beach resorts with swimming pools, quaint holiday cottages, and secluded forest retreats provide easy access to both the beach and the national park.
