Departure Bay beach is located on the central east coast of Vancouver Island. It is just one of the many scenic areas that the city of Nanaimo has to offer.
There’s nothing more island like than watching the departure or arrival of one of the B.C. Ferries.
This is a great place to go for a stroll along the paved walkway or on the beach during low tide. Despite being such a pretty spot, it’s never crowded.
The perfect place to see the colorful sky as the sun sets.
