We personally would not go out of our way to see this area but were on our way to Parksville so decided to stop. The view is nice and it is relaxing. A few interesting shops to visit.

Yes it is true the donuts are the greatest but so is the icecream. The kids can climb the tower and get rid of some of the travellers energy that they have. There is also a playground there and on Saturday a market.

Harbor Quay used to be very, very busy place. Even today it is working place for quite some locally important companies but, first of all, it is naturally beautiful with a great charm of past times and wonderful warmth of welcoming spirit today! Visiting this...More
