Nanaimo, B.C. - The Harbour City
Nanaimo is centrally located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, one of Canada’s most beautiful places. The Nanaimo Golf Club is centrally located in Nanaimo (Nanaimo road map).
It appears that our Island has been discovered. In 2001 and 2002, the readers of Travel & Leisure Magazine voted Vancouver Island the winner of the World’s Best Award—Best Island in the Continental United States/Canada. In addition, Vancouver Island has been named by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine to be "The Best Temperate Island in the World." High praise indeed. Therefore you won’t be surprised to learn that our region is also one of the fastest growing areas in BC.
West Coast Lifestyle
Nanaimo is an excellent place to live, work and invest. Its natural beauty and mild climate lend itself to its amazing West Coast lifestyle. Locals enjoy year-round golf, world-class diving, fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking, sailing and boating. Nanaimo’s protected harbour is second to none. Its waterfront walk offers a great place for an evening jaunt and ocean views for everyone. Nanaimo is also noted for its wide selection of shopping and its vibrant arts, culture and music scene. It has a new and very successful Port Theatre and a new Convention Centre with a Hotel complex soon to be completed in the downtown area.
Nanaimo is well connected with transportation and communications links to the mainland and international markets. There are two ferry terminals to Vancouver, a regional airport, a seaplane terminal with regular service to downtown Vancouver, and a thriving port facility operated by the Nanaimo Port Authority.
From Nanaimo, Victoria is an hour and a half away via the scenic Malahat Highway, Vancouver is an hour and a half away by BC Ferries, and yes, skiing at Mt. Washington (near Courtenay) is an hour and a half away by the new Island Highway.
Nanaimo is the centre of a great quality of life. Come and visit...who knows, you may never leave.
