Ocean Swimming

Parksville is known for its sandy beaches and the warmest ocean waters in Canada. Tigh-Na-Mara is situated on three kilometers of sandy, tidal flat beach, meaning the tide goes out approximately one kilometer, leaving behind small pools that heat up in the sun. When the tide comes in, these pools mix with the cooler ocean and can be as warm as 75-80 degrees F or 25C.

Mountain Bikes (Seasonal)

Rent a bike for the afternoon and explore some of the breathtaking scenery of our area. Ride through Rathtrevor Provincial Park or through Top Bridge Trails and enjoy a swim in the river before heading back.

Rentals are available for two hours, 1/2 day, and all day. We also have children’s bikes and helmets.

Paddle Boards (Seasonal)

Rent a paddle board, paddle and PFD (personal flotation device), head down to the beach and float on the Salish Sea, taking in the beach from a new vantage point. Explore and unwind and don't forget the sunscreen!

Rentals are available hourly, 1/2 day, or all day, from the Snack Shack at the beach.
