Nanoose Bay

Located about 15 minutes away from Nanaimo, Nanoose Bay allows homeowners to feel its rural charm while still being close to Nanaimo. The area’s biggest asset is its oceanfront and ocean view homes, which attracts boat owners and beach lovers. The lot sizes are generally larger in Nanoose Bay and buyers looking for oceanfront homes will find many options here. If you’re looking for a more affordable, smaller, and low maintenance home, the Fairwinds Golf Course is a great option. Developments here range from single-family homes to strata based communities.


Nanoose Bay offers lots of outdoor activities with numerous hiking trails, access to water sports, and boating. The local marina, Schooner Cove Marina, is the perfect place to house your boat or go for a stroll.
