There’s no shortage of things to do at Fairwinds. Whether you’re a busy-body or a homebody, you’ll find comfort in this Vancouver Island oasis.
Grab a bite to eat at the 19th Hole Café, Fairwinds casual dining experience with a million-dollar view. Enjoy coffee and fresh baked goods, a selection of draft beer, wine and premixed cocktails, and a wide variety of menu options. The menu changes seasonally, but with meal-sized salads and the popular house burger remaining a staple, there’s something for everyone.
While you’ll find a lot of relaxing activities within the Fairwinds community, if heart-pumping adventure is more your speed, then explore the nearby biking and hiking trails. Located in the centre of Nanoose Bay, there are some incredible trails including the iconic Notch Hill, Enos Lake, and numerous oceanfront parks. The region is well recognized for its wildlife, so while you explore, keep a look out for eagles, seals, and sea lions, which are frequently spotted from the shores.
If the sounds of rolling tides spark joy in you, Fairwinds is the place to be. Nestled in protected Schooner Cove on the east coast of Vancouver Island you’ll find the Fairwinds Marina with stunning views of the Strait of Georgia and rugged Coastal Mountain Range. The marina provides easy access to boating, fishing, and other water activities so paddle out in your kayak to nearby beaches or just enjoy the marine life from the dock.
Grab a book and cozy up in one of our luxury vacation rentals. The Residences at Fairwinds Landing offer 11 luxury short-term condo rentals with garden and marina views. Lounge outside on the deck, turn on the gas fire pit and take some time to yourself to recharge and relax.
Lace up your sneakers and get ready to make the most out of your visit to the Fairwinds community. Stay active and healthy at the Fairwinds Wellness Club by joining a fitness class, taking a dip in the 20 metre indoor pool, or playing a round of tennis at the outdoor court. You’ll also find our stunning 18-hole golf course open year-round, which welcomes novice golfers and experts alike.
