Wanna swim? Oh boy, have you got options!
Swim in bathtub warm waters after the tide comes in over sun-baked sand. Popular spots include Rathtrevor Beach and the 4 poles at Qualicum Beach.
Spider Lake and Cameron Lake are local favourites.
Jump off "the nose" into the Englishman River at Top Bridge or enjoy the deep crystal-clear pool at the base of the lower Englishman River Falls.
Have a blast at Qualicum Beach's Riverside Resort, featuring a waterslide and 2 pools. Or let the kids enjoy the man-made swimming pond at Qualicum Bay Resort.
On a cold or rainy day, you can still enjoy some water play time at Ravensong Pool in Qualicum Beach! Many hotels in the area also feature pools, some indoor.
The mineral pool at Tigh-Na-Mara's Grotto Spa is infused with natural minerals and trace elements which help to detoxify the body.
