Views were gorgeous, walkway very easy. About 3 miles round trip. Even in the rain it was beautiful.

“One of Nanaimo's best places to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

There're several places in Nanaimo worth visiting, and the Nanaimo Waterfront Walkway is one of the best, starting at the Gabriola Island ferry terminal, continuing through the Inner Harbour, through Maffeo Sutton Park, then on past the Nanaimo Yacht Club. From this walkway there are great views, parks, kid's playgrounds, coffee shops, unique restaurants, the HBC Bastion, and 2 separate small passenger ferries to 1. Newcastle Island (the numero uno spot to visit in Nanaimo: a large park with nice beaches, hiking trails, very large old growth trees, great views) and 2. Protection Island (with the only floating pub in Canada).

“Great walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Although this is a pretty standard waterside walkway the bonus is the amount of public art that has been included. Great way to start the morning - very near most hotels in downtown Nanaimo.

“Excellent boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Very pleasant walk, well maintained and picturesque views. Had great fun watching and speaking to the fishermen catching crab, often with their families on the public fishing pier. Very reasonable parking rates.
