A bit of a (fun!) drive from the main highway. I went there in the morning in March, so it was frost free already. There were just the two of us here, and two curious squirrels + a few woodpeckers. It was such a site that could mediate even the most stressed persons. If you go to Vancouver Island, I... More

Love love love. Go swimming. Take pictures. We always love visiting. Today we discovered it's also very stroller friendly! (As long as you have a medium duty stroller:))

An easy drive from Parksville. Then an easy walk down a nice path to the Lower Falls where a cool and refreshing swim awaits. Bring watershoes or sandals to make it easier on your feet.

My family has been visiting Englishman River Falls for 2 decades. It is a lovely hike with spectacular views of falls. If you are brave, bring your bathing suit for a dip!

The views throughout the forest was amazing. Walking right down to the falls was a lot of fun. A squirrel even posed for a photo up close. I would recommend this hike to anyone visiting the island.

The falls are spectacular, the bridges and walking paths are very well done and can accommodate activity levels of all kinds. The falls themselves just take your breath away. It is quite a drive from Nanaimo to get there, make sure your GPS works, but its worth it.

I took my girlfriend there last week and really enjoyed the falls. The sights and sounds are very calming and peaceful. We stayed for over an hour and really enjoyed it. Even the mosquitoes weren't that bad.

We hiked here on a weekday and there was barely anyone there. The hike is very short, but the falls is quite impressive. We hiked both this trail and Little Qualicum Falls within a few hours of each other. I'd do them both back to back.

I love water falls and this one is a must see. It's even more fun to camp there. Open sites with lots of sun are available. One of my favorites on Vancouver Island

The park has a number of trails that bring you along the river and offer great views of the falls. Very easy to access and suitable for visitors of any age. Not to be missed.
