Welcome To Parksville Qualicum Beach

Here you will find amazing sandy beaches, picture postcard views, world-class biking and hiking trails, salt-tinged ocean air, and the small-town charm of our communities.

Spend some time in Parksville Qualicum Beach and recharge your batteries. Escape the crush of deadlines, traffic jams and over crowded spaces, and step back in time a little.

Seeing goats on a roof, exploring underground caves, strolling endless beaches at low tide, and walking among ancient old growth forests are just some of the experiences you’ll be able to tell your friends about back home.
