Known as the “Isle of the Arts”, home to dozens of world renowned and emerging artists
The Art of West Coast Living
Blessed with one of the best climates in Canada, diverse beaches, nature parks, stunning ocean views and incredible sunsets, Gabriola is home to 4,200 residents which almost doubles in summer.
Our regular commuter ferry service means easy access to and from Nanaimo. But even with the city so close, Gabriola has maintained its laid-back, Gulf Island lifestyle set in a blend of forested and rural landscapes.
We hope you will come to unwind, do some beach combing, play on the water, visit the many local galleries and shops, hike, bike, take in some of the Gabriola culture and make some perfect memories with friends and family.
Enjoy! You’re on island time now.
