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. Our Canada trip builder allows you to schedule your trip to Parksville, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
