I don't care much for Nanaimo, but its harbour front is a nice place for a stroll when it is not raining.

The best place for a walk.

Everybody and their dog is there . . . literally ! What a wonderful place. The view is beautiful, whether you're walking or sitting for an icecream or coffee. Don't forget to stop and pick up a souvenir at one of the cute little shops there.

Walkway along Nanaimo Harbour.

The extensive walkway at long the Nanaimo Harbour extends from Port Place Mall and Gabriela Ferry Terminal to The Departure Bay Ferry terminal. It passes th the boa basin with mixture of fishing boats and pleasure yachts. One can purchase ice creams, speciality coffees and wide selection of island gifts. Harbour Air Sewplane terminal is located on walkway. After passing the Bistro pub and restaurant you will come to Mateo-Sutton Park. Continuing on are the Yacht Club and other marine establishments.

A Lovely Harbourfront Stroll
Jun 2019
Nanaimo’s Harbourfront Walkway provides an opportunity of escape from our fast-moving, hectic lives. Located just down the street from the Coast Bastion, this easy to walk trail provides a glimpse of some of the city’s best: Here, you can admire the boats moored in the harbour; take in and smell the fresh sea air; watch the bustling docks as fishermen prepare their boats for another adventure; admire the seaplanes as they tootle about; relax in one of the casual coffee or ice cream shops; or admire the physical beauty of Maffeo Sutton Park. In short, it would be easy for one to spend the better part of a whole day exploring Nanaimo’s dynamic Harbourfront.

For me, the Harbourfront Walkway allowed for a moment of reflection. As I ambled along, I couldn’t help but think about how lucky I am to have the people in my life that I do. Whether they be friends or family, they’ve done much to shape who I am today. Really, what better setting that Nanaimo’s beautiful Harbourfront to reflect on such things? Afterwards, and as my stroll came to an end, I couldn’t help but stop for a delightful iced cream treat at “Just Desserts.” It was a good way to spend part of an afternoon, and it’s an activity I highly recommend you take as well.

Lovely Place to Stroll
Nov 2019
This is a lovely place to walk with places for great coffee tea, ice cream and fresh air. It will take you all along the waterfront, through Maffeo Sutton Park and right down to the boat yards. Great easy way to exercise and take in the sights and sounds of being on the water.

Walk on the waterfront
Feb 2020 • Family
We always start our walk from behind the Cameron island apartments. And continue on down the docks and pathway through Mafao park. There are ice cream shops and restaurants along the docks. Past that there’s a long dock that people fish and crab off of. There’s a big playground for kids and a zip line that goes across the lagoon. In the summer it’s a wonderful park to visit and there’s often activities, bands, markets etc.

Took a walk along the waterfront today. The weather was co operating with blue skies and needed a break from errands.
I love the sights and sounds of the harbou, very relaxing. Great to see the shops along the front also.
