Located on the east coast of the island, Nanaimo is the hub for the mid and north island. This waterfront community offers a wide range of outdoor and city adventures.

Visit the eateries, shopping and nightlife in the historic downtown year-round, or head to the great outdoors for a game of golf or for mountain and marine activities like skiing and fishing. Nanaimo is known for its friendly, temperate climate and for some of the most beautiful wilderness in the world.
