Pipers Lagoon is a great place to explore the rugged beauty off the Salish Sea. There are numerous benches to sit and read, relax, or have a picnic on one of the picnic benches. There is a causeway that leads out to the hiking area. Once one gets to the end of the causeway, you have a choice of going... More

Love this place! It is small (no long hike here) but packed with all sorts of stuff. Along the causeway, you have the beach on one side and the tidal lagoon on the other. A great place for the kids to play. Then there is the rocky promontory you have to climb to get to the treed area - short... More

This is a wonderful place to find, special views, peace and quiet, take a leisurely walk or simply sit on a log and look at the ever changing ocean. It is definitely one of our favorite places to relax in Nanaimo. We love sharing it with visitors.

Great place to go for a short hike with minimum difficulty on a small island off Nanaimo. At low tide you can also go over to Shack Island a historical story in Nanaimo. You can also bring a boat and sit on a bench on the ocean and have some quiet time

There is nothing to dislike about Pipers Lagoon. It's so accessible by car with plenty of parking and a public washroom is a great help in making a trip to Pipers Lagoon trouble-free. There are picnic tables in a large meadow just in front of the beach, but the best part of the Lagoon is the walk to the higher... More

At the end of our day in the area, we did this pretty walk. It took less than an hour. Well worth the stop. Bathrooms and plenty of parking. Wear suitable footwear for climbing on the rocks. We could have easily stayed longer. Lots of benches to stop to admire the view.

Pipers Lagoon is a lovely little beach and walking area that is tucked in close to the shore. Protection from the rocks nearby mean that even on a windy day it is quite calm and warm. A popular spot to sunbath and swim - arrive early to get parking.

Piper's Lagoon is a beautiful park. If you're in Nanaimo and a fan of wildlife and nature, visit it! You won't regret it, although it can be a little out of the way.
