Beachcomber Regional Park

Small but precious, this accessible one hectare oceanside park was acquired by the RDN in 1955. It's 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 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. Away from the sea, enjoy short walking trails through arbutus, Douglas-fir and Gary Oak woodland. things to do
