Four kilometers of curving, postcard-perfect sand gives the town of Qualicum Beach its name.
When the tide is high, sightseers, bikers, hikers and their dogs keep to dry ground by utilizing the paved promenade that fronts one of Vancouver Island and BC's most storied beaches. The promenade is lined with picnic tables, shade trees, a wash/change room, and lots of parking.
Go for a swim.
Rent a kayak.
Qualicum Beach is also known for the famous Ocean Mile Swim.
Romance seekers find dinner and a sunset hand-in-hand stroll a wonderful way to rekindle that flame.
Summer sunsets are a nice time to gaze at the passing cruise ships.
