I ADORE Piper’s
Jan 2021
I absolutely love this park. It unfortunately was to muddy to climb the rocks and get off the trail. There was plenty of benches to sit on and take in the view.

Very cool park!

Don't be dismayed if there are quite a few cars in the parking lot because you likely won't see many people. Some people hang out at the beach alongside the spit - so many logs and driftwood to sit on and about 500M of beachfront, so nobody's going to get crowded. And the shubs and bushes keep the beach from obvious sight in any case. Head left and over the rocky bluff to what amounts to an amazing little island around which there are easy trails. Depending on the tide, you can even take a shortcut back to the spit by skirting the lagoon. Watch your step if you're wearing Gucci shoes, though. Otherwise, comfortable walking shoes will do.

Great day trip
Aug 2019 • Family
Pipers Lagoon is my favourite beach in the Nanaimo area. In the March herring roe cover the beach and the waters are full over wildlife - seals, sea lions, otters. In the summer, you can wade or swim.

A walk by the sea worthwhile
Oct 2019
The walk has some ups and downs so a short climbing ability is required. Not for people on wheel chairs or walkers. It is a windy spot on a windy day as it is right on the ocean. But it is worth while to go there and get a view of of Nanaimo and the flora and beaches which surround it. It was worth the uneven climb and trails. Highly recommend it.

FUN & FABULOUS
Sep 2019
Garry Oaks sculpted by the seasons, moss covered rocks, Shack Island water front cabins still in use today. Unequaled views with an ever changing water front as the tide comes in and goes out. For the more adventurous, and fit, rocks to climb over, wonderful place to walk the dog, or sit on a log, mediate or just enjoy!

i loooooooooove pipers lagoon
Sep 2019
this is such an amazing nature spot for photoshoots, swimming and just walking around. there's clubhouses around, there's a lot of rocks and places to sit like benches. it's a rocky beach so watch out for those with not great balance. jellyfish wash up sometimes so be careful around the water! but overall, super nice place. easy to get to, easy to enjoy!

Lovely Location for Walks
Sep 2019
Walk at your leisure along the waterfront, plenty of benches to relax, smell the salt air and watch the boats and water fowl. Pet friendly, clean restrooms and ample parking.

As could a view as you can get in Nanaimo
Aug 2019
You can watch the ferries , occasionally see sea lions and whales and swim almost year round. You can also experience the uniqueness of the Gary Oak and Arbutus trees. It is also as peaceful as any place on the Island

Great place to walk
Jul 2019
This is a great place for a walk, to sit on a log & think about life, to go for a paddle in the ocean or have a picnic.
