Conveniently located in Central Nanaimo and in close proximity to the BC Ferries, Departure Bay Ferry Terminal and only minutes to Downtown. This neighbourhood is perfect for those looking for the perfect mix of retirement and family oriented communities alike.  Much like neighboring Hammond Bay, this area is what many would expect when they think “West Coast” with it’s beautiful parks, walking trails, breathtaking scenery and nearby restaurants and shopping convenience at Country Club Mall and Brooks Landing. There is a mix of character style homes by the beach, older split-level homes on the hill, townhouses, patio homes and luxury homes on the rocky bluffs.

In the summer months Departure Bay Beach is a popular great place to go for an evening stroll or to let the kids play at Kinsman Park. The bay is excellent for swimming, kayaking or just catching some sun.  It is also one of the few beaches to have a lifeguard on duty during the summer months, so it is a great place to for a swim. Beach Fishing is also very popular in the late summer as the pink salmon enter the bay you will see plenty of fisherman wetting their lines.
