The harbourfront Walkway is such a pleasant place to visit. We go there at least twice a week, people are friendly, the scenery lovely, and a person would never feel uncomfortable walking alone.

Frequently, my little dog and I do this walk. Very interesting for people watching. Really fun if a cruise boat is in Nanaimo - so many happy faces! Paved trail/walk. Views to die for. Lots to see and a few places to pick up an ice cream or coffee with seating outside along the way.

Nicely done boardwalk area with pubs and shops along the way. Very easy to get when coming through Nanaimo. Generally safe and well lit for our night time stroll. Not many shops were up later on, just the restuarants and the ice cream places. Also a good proximity to seaplanes for quick escapes when necessary. Also able to find interesting street performers on the way.

Our favourite experience in Nanaimo. We've been up and down the walkway, at all times of the day and night, for 17+ years and this is still one of our favourite things to do here and to recommend to visitors to Nanaimo. The beautiful vistas, the lagoon, crab dock, coffee shops and restaurants and all the way down to BC Ferries at Departure Bay.

At the ferry terminal, on the west side, there is an extension of the walkway that takes you down to the beach. From there you can access the beach to Departure Bay or head west and up through Beach Estates Park, a veritable rainforest grove in the centre of town.

I honestly can't imagine coming to Nanaimo and not enjoying a walk up and down the Seawall. Showcases the best natural views of our community.

The hotel suggested a walk to the Nanaimo Waterfront. It was a wonderful treat. The walk was lovely, locals we encountered were great to talk to and it was fun just to sit and watch the harbor activity. I learned so much about crabbing!
