Nanoose Bay

Envision an exotic green-canopied landscape punctuated by artists' studios, picturesque B&Bs, resorts, an awesome golf club, and a marina with a range of services including kayak, sail, and fishing charters. This is Nanoose! The coves and hidden beaches, stunning rock formations, and rare arbutus forest cover make the Nanoose peninsula a nature lover's paradise. Homes on this piece of paradise are available from townhouses to acreages. Choosing a home in this area, you can take a sight-seeing boat trip to visit Jedediah Island, now a provincial park, and watch for its infamous wild goats, reportedly left by the Spanish centuries ago.

Maybe start with a day of fishing or pick up some fresh prawns.


Then soothe yourself to the waves splashing on a rocky shore or a sunset that never seems to stop.
