About Nanaimo

We encourage visitors to take advantage of Nanaimo's warm hospitality.
Our renowned picturesque waterfront promenade passes right outside our front gate. Its highlights include Swy-a-Lana Lagoon with its excellent children's playground, the Lighthouse Bistro Pub, and the Pioneer Plaza shopping arcade. The historic Bastion (last genuine Hudson's Bay Company trading post in existence) stands above the Plaza. The Port Theatre, the Nanaimo & District Museum, the Old City Quarter and numerous quality restaurants are all within easy walking distance of the Marina.

In the summer, a busy and colorful farmer's market enlivens Pioneer Plaza on Friday mornings. Live entertainment, organic produce, handicrafts and flowers are among the fares for sale. The noon firing of the HBC Bastion's antique cannon, by costumed staff, is definitely worth waiting around for. You can pick up the "catch of the day" from the government dock and then visit the Port Place Mall where a liquor store, post office, hair salon, pharmacy, bank and grocery store can be found.

For the golfer, several challenging golf courses highlight our city. Local world class scuba diving attractions like the HMCS Saskatchewan, the HMCS Cape Breton, the Rivtow Lion, Dodds Narrows, and Gabriola Passage are all close by.
