Known as the Harbour City of Vancouver Island, Nanaimo sits along the east coast of south-central Vancouver Island. As British Columbia's 6th largest city, it gets its identity, history and a wealth of recreation from a lovely, island-sheltered harbour right in the heart of town. Hiking, boating, kayaking, biking and world-class scuba diving and snorkeling are everyday activities at the bustling waterfront.
Nanaimo is a fast-growing urban center that boasts a boldly revitalized downtown core, delightful harbourfront walkway, sparkling new museum, affordable art galleries and a wealth of cool shopping and dining alternatives.
