Make the Alberni Valley your Homebase for the Perfect Vacation
One of the best things about travel on Vancouver Island is there is so much to see and do. When you make the Alberni Valley your adventure base, you can explore nearby communities and attractions with an easy day or weekend trip. Many refer to the central location of Port Alberni as the “Heart of the West Coast” and the perfect hub for all of your Vancouver Island adventures.
With rugged and beautiful coastlines, wondrously long stretches of sandy beach, and thundering waves that crash the surf, the stark contrast from the peaceful and calm waters of Vancouver Island’s east coast will leave you wondering if you are still on the same Island. The west coast of Vancouver Island is not something to be missed.
Parksville / Qualicum Beach / Coombs
Boasting amazing parks, beautiful, sandy beaches, spectacular golf courses and plenty of boutique shops, Vancouver Island’s Oceanside towns are definitely worth a visit.
Bamfield / Pacific Rim National Park
Whether getting there by logging road, ferry, or even seaplane visiting Bamfield is a great way to spend a day, or even 2 or 3, seeing all that this tiny town on the edge of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve has to offer.
You will love all that the Alberni Valley region has to offer, and can explore Vancouver Island from a central location. Find the right accommodations for you, whether lake side resort, the comfort of a hotel or motel, or some great camping and/or RV family fun!
