Voice of BC's Professional Bed & Breakfast Industry

Qualicum Beach British Columbia is a charming seaside community in the Oceanside region on the central east coast of Vancouver Island.  Just a ways north of Nanaimo and adjacent to Parksville, it is both a popular tourist destination and a popular retirement community.  Many artisans are also drawn to Qualicum Beach by its quaint village atmosphere and its fabulous beach and shoreline.

Qualicum Beach is also known as Vancouver Island’s Garden Village and has been a multiple winner in the cross-Canada Communities in Bloom competition.  Its mild climate draws gardeners to the area as well.  One of Canada’s best public gardens, Milner Gardens & Woodlands, is just 2 km out of town on the Island Highway.

One of the most popular recreational activities in Qualicum Beach is golf.  Between Parksville and Qualicum Beach there are six Vancouver Island golf courses in the region, including challenging courses at Fairwinds and Morningstar.

There really is something for everyone in and around Qualicum Beach.  For the foodlovers, Little Qualicum Cheeseworks is producing award winning local cheeses at Morningstar Farm.  The village centre is pedestrian friendly and offers one of a kind boutiques and galleries.  Qualicum Beach Bed & Breakfasts are the perfect choice for a stay in the area to explore the many Qualicum Beach attractions.
