Come find paradise

Shady Shores Beach Resort is located just minutes north of Qualicum and Parksville.

Our Vancouver Island oceanfront resort blends the virtues of an intimate Country Inn with the privacy and comforts of condominium living. We welcome you to share in our natural paradise.

Situated on a secluded beachfront setting with the Strait of Georgia at your door step, you can enjoy beach combing, bonfires, clam digging, oyster picking and salmon fishing.

From early September to mid October anglers from around the world descend upon our shores for the pink and northern Coho salmon runs. Chest waders or belly boats are all that is required for an extreme day of fishing.

View an abundance of marine life including blue herons, bald eagles, seal and many other species from the comforts of your beachfront suite, or our Oceanfront Hot tub. Kayak rentals are available to explore the tranquil shoreline.

The Resort is centrally located to many points of interest on Vancouver Island, mountain biking & skiing at Mt. Washington, winery tours in the Comox Valley, Spelunking at Horne Lake Caves and numerous Pristine hiking trails that abound, some leading to majestic waterfalls.

World famous Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park is also close by. Visit Cathedral Grove for an incredible walk in the rare old giant Douglas fir trees and stop at Coombs to visit the abundance of markets.

A golfer’s Mecca, there are 16 courses with in an hours drive offering a challenge to suit any skill level. Many in the Parksville and Qualicum Beach area.

One of our seven delightfully charming Oceanfront suites will surely satisfy couples and families alike. Relax on your patio and observe the eagles soaring above while listening to the sounds of the waves. Cozy up around a beachfront camp fire or slip into the hut tub and experience the star lit nights as the cruise ships pass on their way to Alaska.
