Nanoose Bay

Nanoose Bay is a small seaside resort between Nanaimo and Parksville on the eastern shore of Central Vancouver Island. Within the area is Beachcomber Regional Park, a one hectare oceanside park situated at the end of Nanoose’s Beachcomber Peninsula, and offers spectacular views west across Craig Bay to Parksville and Mount Arrowsmith and north across the Salish Sea (Strait of Georgia) to the mainland coastal mountains. At low tide, large flat rocks are exposed which makes great territory for exploring and tide pool investigating. The larger Moorecroft Regional Park has a long beach with spectacular views across the water. This park also contains a wetland area and a network of trails. Picnicking, swimming, biking and walking are popular. While in the area do some paddling, fishing and sailing or just walk the trails, have a round of golf and follow the art loop and scenic drive to the working studios of the Nanoose Bay Peninsula’s many artisans.

Location

Nanoose Bay is located 26 km (16 mi) north of Nanaimo and 15 km (9 mi) south of Parksville, just off Hwy 19 on the east coast of Vancouver Island.

A Step Back in Time

Nanoose Bay is named after a First Nations band related to the Nanaimo Indians. According to local theory, the word means ‘Pushing Forward’ – a reference to the shape of Nanoose Bay, which is a six-kilometre long deepwater bay formed by the peninsula.
