One must-visit location in Qualicum is the famous Qualicum Beach, a long stretch of sandy shoreline where you can soak up the sun, build sandcastles, or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll along the water's edge. The beach is often adorned with unique seashells and driftwood treasures, echoing the wonders of the Pacific Ocean.

For adventure seekers, hiking trails are abundant in Qualicum. Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park is home to magnificent waterfalls and captivating trails that wind through old-growth forests. The park offers excellent opportunities for hiking, picnicking, and wildlife spotting.

The Journey Begins: Departing from Qualicum

After indulging in the natural wonders of Qualicum, it's time to embark on an exciting journey towards The Malahat, passing through enchanting landscapes and charming communities along the way.

Leaving Qualicum, you'll soon find yourself on Highway 19, heading south towards Nanaimo. As you say goodbye to the calm coastal atmosphere, be prepared for a shift in scenery as you approach the bustling city.

Arrive in Nanaimo and Savor its Urban Delights

Nanaimo, the second-largest city on Vancouver Island, offers a blend of urban vibes and natural beauty. Famous for its world-famous Nanaimo bars and stunning waterfront scenery, this lively city is worth exploring.

Be sure to stroll along the picturesque waterfront promenade known as the Nanaimo Harbourfront Walkway. This scenic trail offers breathtaking views of the harbor, and you might even spot marine wildlife such as seals or orcas in the distance.

When in Nanaimo, don't miss the opportunity to try the original Nanaimo bar at one of the local cafes. This delectable dessert layered with chocolate and custard is a true Canadian delight.

Continuing the Journey to the Malahat

Leaving Nanaimo behind, the drive to The Malahat takes you on a visually stunning route through winding roads, dense forests, and scenic viewpoints.

As you ascend The Malahat Highway, be prepared for jaw-dropping vistas that showcase the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding mountains and the picturesque Saanich Inlet.

Once you reach the summit of The Malahat, take a moment to appreciate the panoramic views of the islands and ocean below. This viewpoint is perfect for capturing memorable photographs and immersing yourself in the natural splendor.

Unleash Your Adventurous Side in The Malahat

The Malahat is not only renowned for its outstanding views; it also offers a plethora of outdoor activities for adventure enthusiasts.

If you fancy hiking, Goldstream Provincial Park is a must-visit. This stunning park is home to lush rainforests, remarkable waterfalls, and an abundance of wildlife. Explore the various trails, such as the Goldstream Trestle Trail, and witness the captivating beauty of nature up close.

If you prefer a more relaxing experience, visit one of The Malahat's local wineries, where you can savor award-winning wines while indulging in breathtaking vineyard views. Raise a glass, enjoy the exquisite flavors, and toast to a memorable journey.

The Qualicum to The Malahat journey is a delightful escape that takes you from the tranquility of Qualicum to the exciting urban atmosphere of Nanaimo and the captivating beauty of The Malahat. Whether you are seeking relaxation, adventure, or a taste of the local culinary scene, this route offers a diverse range of experiences that will leave you in awe.

So, pack your bags, hit the road, and embark on this fascinating journey that promises to create lasting memories and unforgettable moments.

This is your guide to dozens of spectacular and often hidden beaches on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island between Qualicum and the Malahat. While some of them are well used by people living nearby, many are virtually impossible to find without combing through official maps and back-road guides. From tiny rocky coves to broad sandy beaches, these public-access spots are enormously diverse.

Just as important as finding these spots is knowing what to expect. Thus each location is accompanied by detailed information that any beach explorer should know before setting out. Is the beach a few level steps from a vehicle or down a high, steep bank? Is the beach suitable for children? Large groups? Kayakers?

All of these questions and many more are answered in this book, which includes Theo鈥檚 hand-drawn maps, photographs and artwork.

  • Watch sea lions in the winter (Higginson Road)
  • Paint one of the few great views of Mt. Arrowsmith鈥攇o before noon for dramatic light (Rowland Road)
  • Head to the most child-friendly beach between Crofton and the Malahat (Cherry Point Nature Park)
  • Splash and swim in warm water over sand (Benwalden Road)

Refresh your pleasure in the shore and head out to picnic, play, launch kayaks, watch winter storms or just enjoy the waves.
