Canada’s Riviera on Vancouver Island.

If you love all types of beaches, this area’s 19 kilometers of shoreline are perfect for you. There are the wide sandy expanses of Rathtrevor and Parksville Community Beaches; the paved promenade and picnic areas of Qualicum Beach; or the beachcombing delights of Lighthouse Country.

On Vancouver Island’s eastern shore, currents and ocean floor topography combine to create wide, flat expanses of sand where low tide goes out for a kilometer. Long summer days warm the water to as much as 20°C and tidal pools are brimming with sea stars, crabs and sand dollars.

Rathtrevor Beach
Sunrise Ridge’s Parksville beach resort is located on this beautiful 5 kilometer sandy beach. A short walk from Sunrise Ridge takes you to Rathtrevor Park, with its woodland and oceanfront trails, and picnic grounds. at low tide the ocean recedes, at times, up to a kilometer from the shore, allowing you to literally walk on the bottom of the ocean!!

Lighthouse Country
At the northern end of Oceanside, Lighthouse Country is home to many secluded bays and the beaches become rockier – perfect for beachcombing. This area is home to the communities of Qualicum Bay, Bowser and Deep Bay and two picturesque lighthouses.
