Set right on the beach, the chalet-style Beach Club Resort looks out
over the Strait of Georgia from sleepy Parksville, on the east coast of
Vancouver Island. Parksville comes recommended for “those craving a
laid-back, family-friendly enclave” by Lonely Planet. There are plenty of sandy shores to choose from locally, including the hotel’s kid-friendly beach. Frommer’s suggests heading 10 minutes east to Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park for the best beaches.
Parksville is only a half-hour drive
from the ferry terminal in Nanaimo, for easy transfers from the
mainland. There are six golf courses in the vicinity, as well as 70
acres of carefully tended gardens to explore at Milner Gardens. A
45-minute drive to the north lies Courtenay, known for its fossils and
prehistoric remains (don’t miss its District Museum and Palaeontology
Centre), and Mount Washington Alpine Resort offers excellent skiing an
hour and 15 minutes away by car. A 45-minute drive west will bring you
to Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park and “BC's best spelunking” (Lonely Planet).
at the hotel, admire the sea views from the hot tub while the kids take
a dip in the indoor heated pool. Guests can also relax with a seaweed
wrap or a marine-inspired treatment at the on-site Stonewater Spa.
Suites range in size from studios to two-bedroom apartments. All have
floor-to-ceiling windows leading out to private balconies or patios
overlooking the beach, mountains or town.
From the press:
"There are plenty of beachside resorts in this
seaside community, but here, the views from the oceanfront suites are the best
for the ‘Wow’ factor, especially from the upper floors" -- Frommer’s
