Qualicum Beach

About 7 minutes north of Parksville Beach, Qualicum Beach has its sandy area uncovered at low tide. If you’re coming in from the water you’ll have a great view of Mt Arrowsmith, Hornby and Denman Islands are to the north and Lasquitti and Texada islands are to the east with the mainland and Coastal Mountains beyond. Qualicum Beach is right along Hwy 19A and it is a great place to do some bird watching.
