Parksville Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 17 photos


Okay this is a decieving image, Parksville is not so backwards at all, its actually becoming quite the nice little town. Both my parental units live here, and moved over 21 years ago now. When they moved here, you could count the number of vehicles travelling the island highway,

"how many was that in the last half hour?"
"oh...roughly 5"

Now, you loose track, it can get pretty busy on the island highway these days. Sometimes close to bumper to bumper, especially as soon as you get off the ferry from Vancouver. There are some nice beaches here, a great park - Rathtrevor, some very nice camping spots in Rathtrevor as well as the general area. I'd recommend Rathtrevor. The beach at Rathtrevor is one where you can wade out for a long time and you'll only be up to your thighs.
Not many rocks to step on, just nice sand.
There are a lot of great walking trails in this park, lots to explore .
